Juliet Beckett believes in destiny. When she moves into Greywethers, a beautiful 16th-century farmhouse, she suspects that more than coincidence has brought her there. The locals are warm and welcoming; especially the eligible squire of Crofton Hall, yet beneath the ordinaries, Julia senses a haunting sadness about her new home. Then she learns of Mariana, a beautiful young woman who lived there 300 years ago. It seems history has been waiting for Julia...

I picked this book up at Euston Station years ago and have reread it countless times over the years. The Audible recording helps me to find nuances that I had missed before and it soothes me to sleep.

I love this book.

The charm of spending the Christmas holidays in South Wales, with its crumbling castles and ancient myths, seems the perfect distraction from the nightmares that have plagued literary agent Lyn Ravenshaw since the loss of her baby five years ago. Instead she meets an emotionally fragile young widow who's convinced that Lyn's recurring dreams have drawn her to Castle Farm for an important purpose - and she's running out of time.

I ended up reading it and not listening to the audible. I found the English drawl a little much. They all sounded like Sloan Rangers and like every thing was a dreadful bore.

I have read all of this author's books and wasn't as keen on this as some of the others. Mariana is one of my favorite books ever, I've read it numerous times. I needed more meat on the bones.
