Moon's ( In Name Only ) new tale is based on the familiar theme of lovers who are reincarnated and return to a former home. Here the past lovers are Confederate soldier David Richards and Eliza, the woman who saved his life. Despite their deep love, happiness eludes them in this life, so David orders that his house remain vacant until a female Richards descendant arrives who will "live in the house, without a job, without any independent income, before inheriting it." When Elizabeth Richards arrives to claim the house, she has been having strange dreams and finds that her distant cousin, John, resembles David. Elizabeth is thwarted in her plan to inherit it by Stanley McCollum, the estate's manager, and by John, who hopes to raze the old house. Elizabeth is attracted to but wary of John--he may even be responsible for her being dragged to court for a sanity hearing, a scene far more fantastic than reincarnation. While the Eliza/David story occupies much of the book, it feels like mere scaffolding for the Elizabeth/John story. Nevertheless, this one should find favor among romance readers who enjoy stories with a time travel or New Age spin.
