Publisher's Summary

When American Lexi Maxwell buys a derelict mansion in a quaint English village and sets about turning it into a manor-house hotel, it’s a dream come true. But events take a turn for the bizarre, as a heartbroken ghost makes a nightly appearance and kneels beneath a tree next to a centuries-old ruin, and people in the village keep commenting on Lexi’s resemblance to a woman who’s been dead for a quarter of a century.

As Lexi tries to find out more about the man in the ruin, she unexpectedly stumbles upon secrets from her own past - secrets that threaten to destroy everything she’s come to believe and hold dear. As Lexi struggles to put the pieces of the puzzle together, she’s drawn deeper into the mystery and can only rely on the man she’s come to have deep feelings for - a man who’s battling his own demons.

Love the story

Love all her books and this is no exception. She tells the story of two separate times that are somehow connected. Worth the read or listen ;)

Another wonderful story from Irina Shapiro

I loved this book and the narrator was very good. if you love Outlander (Diana Gabaldon)and Susanna Kearsley's books then in my opinion you will love Irina Shapiro's books!

Great Read

I was riveted as I walked through this story. She left me on the edge of my seat in a beautiful way so often as she moved b/w the 2 time lines. The characters had me fully engaged in their story from the moment I met them. Another great story by Irina Shapiro.

Worth adding to your listening library

Irina has woven a wonderful story that mixes the present with a time in history, that at first does not seem to be related , but the artistry of Irina melds the two stories and make them fit together in a surprising way. As with all audiobooks the reader can either bring the story to life or get the book turned off. Joanne started the read a bit stilted, but don't give up listening. She opens up to the story and the three accent within the book making it a great read.

Loved the story.

If you're British I suggest you listen to the sample first .I found the narrators awful English and Scottish accents really distracting .I love this author and will be buying the book but if it was my first by her I may not be saying the same thing .

Enjoyable, engaging listen

Really enjoyable listen. Another engaging and gripping story from Irina Shapiro. Two love stories, past and present, plus twists, atmosphere - and a few tears from me!

Another winner from Irina

I am a huge fan of time slip novels and this one hit the spot. Good characters and a great story as always with a book from Irina. I love listening to audio books particularly on my drive to and from work. This is one of those books that I shall listen to more than once. Highly recommended.
