Publisher's Summary

It isn't every day an impoverished young gentleman inherits a sizable fortune and an estate. Nickolas Pritchard, not only impoverished and young, but a gentleman as well, felt his luck acutely the day just such a remarkable inheritance fell upon him.

The future has never looked brighter for once penniless Nickolas Pritchard. Now in possession of an unforeseen legacy from a distant cousin, he can finally woo the exquisite Miss Castleton, belle of the London Season. What better setting for matchmaking than Ty Mynydd, his ancestral home nestled in the untamed hills of Wales? Ideal, indeed...except for the ghost.

For nearly 400 years, Gwen has walked the halls of the home in which she lived - and died a mysterious death. But despite centuries as the reigning force within her ancient residence, nothing prepares her for the charm and unexpected appeal of Englishman Nickolas.

A deep and abiding affection grows between the two, tempered by the unbreakable barrier that separates them. They cannot possibly hope for a happily ever after. There can be no future between a man yet living and a woman long dead.

But how can Nickolas possibly give Gwen up? And how can Gwen face an eternity without Nickolas?

MY TAKE
Another Sarah Eden book that I loved. I've had the book for a while but listened to the audiobook. The narrator did a great job.

While the actual romance--once it's discussed as that--seems to move a little fast, it's still charming and delightful. The ending climax is exciting and satisfying.

The Best Ghost Story Ever

This story was a joy from beginning to end. It was one of those books that are all too rare that is actually everything you hoped it would be going into it. I have nothing but respect for Sarah Eden.

Different Story

This story was so different than any stories I've read or listened to by Sarah Eden but I absolutely loved! It kept me wondering throughout how things were going to turn out and the mystery of Gwen.

Good story..... enjoyed it's unfoldment

I do like the fact that Sarah M. Eden writes stories that are based on a belief in God. It makes her stories more powerful and more believable. This was an interesting premise - a human and a ghost falling in love, and the author brought the story to a very satisfying and believable conclusion.
I'm still trying to decide if I like or not Aubrey Warner's narrations. She seems to do a good job narrating some books (I have to take the word of another reviewer that she pronounced the Welsh words correctly, as they're a mystery to me!) however I do not like her English accent - she sounds like an American trying to do a British accent - which is exactly what she is. And although I do not like a slow reader, I sometimes feel that she is reading too fast and find it difficult to hear what she's just said. Maybe she will improve with more experience??
