On her arrival, she begins to have strange dreams and then discovers some mysterious animals who are like eternal guardians of the estate. As she makes local friends and becomes acquainted with her new residence, she finds a diary that was painstakingly written by her great-grandmother, another Rosalind, in 1918 during the heyday of the estate.
It’s no ordinary diary. In a way, it’s like a time-travel device that opens a window into Rosalind’s and former Rosalind’s lives.
Very quickly, Roz and her companion Baylor, who intends to write a best seller from the diary, go deeper and deeper into the mystery of great-grandmother, the estate, secret societies, the occult and the former Rosalind’s earlier life as an Oracle at Delphi where she made predictions for Alexander “The Great”.
There is star-crossed romance, mystery, drama, rivalry, magic, spirituality, a great old haunted mansion, Medieval reenactment, jousting, a talking skull, a blue-eyed cat, a raven, beautiful countryside, moonlit rides, shape-changing and some enchanting horses.

revs up with careful world-building and characters are skillfully built. At the conclusion, the mood is excellently set for Volume 2. I will be waiting patiently.
If you like Halloween, ghosts, history, romance, and a healthy dose of mysticism, then this is the book for you.
The author has done her homework on historical background and witchcraft. While reading, you will feel as if the curse cast by out leading Lady and her grandmother are real. You will feel the sadness, the longing to attain happiness, and the trouble one causes when messing with mind of fellow humans and animals.
This is a story you must really pay attention to as you read. Don't make assumptions and read too much into the actions of the characters because you will e wrong. Some of the subject matter is a little intense but all readers should be able to cope. And the author will take you back in time to re-live past lives, good or bad.
I enjoyed this book and I look forward to getting the next one. This is a book I wish I had in paperback or hardcopy to add to my shelf here at home.
