Looking for a book following the “life” of four atoms

Some years ago I picked up a nonfiction book that I think begins with the creation of four atoms in a supernova, and follows the path of these atoms as one becomes part of a new star, one becomes part of a life form, one falls into a black hole, etc. For some reason my wife returned that book, and I have just spent a half hour looking for it, with no success. Any suggestions for helping me track this down?
