The book takes the main character, Julia Beckett, to a past life, after she purchases "Greywethers", a beautiful old sixteenth century house. She has loved the house and been drawn to it ever since she was a young child. Once she moves in, however, life as she knew it ends, and life as Mariana, one half of a pair of star crossed lovers, begins.
Mariana lived in the seventeenth century. She and her beloved, Richard de Mornay, the lord of Crofton Hall Manor, were never to live happily ever after, as their life together came to an abrupt end. Yet, they were to be reunited, as his dying words prophesied.
It awaited Julia to make things come full circle. As Julia undergoes a past life regression and relives portions of Mariana's life, she ultimately realizes that the past is often found in the present. More important, what once went wrong in the past, may be made right in the here and now.
This well-written, spellbinding book is sure to captivate the reader. Bravo!
Ms. Kearsley does justice to both Mariana and Julia. The blend of History and Romance is dare I say it?.... Sweet. I loved the relationship between Julia and her brother. I love the whole "soul mate" feel in this book. It reminded me of "A Knight in Shining Armor" by Jude Deveraux although this moved at an entirely different pace and the ending brought tears to my eyes. When I read this I remember rereading it throughout the weekend and since then I have loaned it out to many friends and they have adored it just as much. It was JUST THAT GOOD.
FYI the book is hard to find you might have to locate it on auction sites.
