A ghost story with a strong romantic theme

It's not always easy to present a time-slip novel convincingly, but Christina Courtenay has found the perfect formula here. When Melissa Grantham arrives at Ashleigh Manor, hoping to build a new life for herself and her daughter, she starts to experience dreams that are disturbingly real. They are frightening, but compelling, and she finds herself inexorably drawn into the lives of star-crossed lovers Sybilla and Roger several centuries earlier. Unable to shake off the past, she finds herself also unable to give herself wholly to attractive villager Jake Precy because of Roger's all-too-haunting presence. But Melissa is a genealogist and her skills are a useful tool when it comes to untangling the past.



The tale is vividly told and we are swept up by both the past and the present strands. My only niggle would be that I found the narrator's voice rather cloyingly sweet and her attempts at male voices very contrived.



Well worth listening to though!
