Product description

The first time Julia Beckett saw Greywethers she was only five, but she knew that it was her house. And now that she's at last become its owner, she suspects that she was drawn there for a reason. As if Greywethers were a portal between worlds, she finds herself transported into seventeenth-century England, becoming Mariana, a young woman struggling against danger and treachery, and battling a forbidden love. Each time Julia travels back, she becomes more enthralled with the past...until she realizes Mariana's life is threatening to eclipse her own, and she must find a way to lay the past to rest or lose the chance for happiness in her own time.

By Marian Sutton 17 Feb 2013 4

The storey slips between the present day and the past. It tells a part of Marianna's life in the 17th century and I enjoyed reading about the romances both in the present and past. I was not expecting the little twist at the end.

By Anne Whitfield 01 Sep 2010 5

I loved this time travel story when I read this years ago. The new cover is a little desceptive in showing the reader that the books is set mainly in the 17th century, but the story is undoubtedly one of my favourites. The heroine stays with you long after you finish reading the last page. The details are rich and sweep you away so that you feel a part of both worlds.
If you like time-slip novels, do yourself a favour and read this book.
