Description

What will it take to put the past to rest? Professional genealogist Melissa Grantham receives an invitation to visit her family's ancestral home, Ashleigh Manor. From the moment she arrives, life-like dreams and visions haunt her. The spiritual connection to a medieval young woman and her forbidden lover have her questioning her sanity, but Melissa is determined to solve the mystery. Jake Precy, owner of a nearby cottage, has disturbing dreams too, but it's not until he meets Melissa that they begin to make sense. He hires her to research his family's history, unaware their lives are already entwined. Is the mutual attraction real or the result of ghostly interference? A haunting love story set partly in the present and partly in fifteenth century Kent. Christina Courtenay won the 2012 Best Historical Romantic novel of the year award (RoNA) for her novel Highland Storms.show more

Review quote

This suspenseful, parallel, historical, time travel, paranormal is one huge page turner. It is not difficult to believe every scene and follow Melissa's frightening journey into the cruel past. This reader was thoroughly swept away by the good description, believable emotion, and language appropriate for the timeframe of each scene. Ms. Courtenay is a skilled storyteller. "show more
