Julia has seen the house several times over her lifetime and each occasion she feels it calling to her. When she comes across it again on a country drive, she sees it is for sale. After buying it, she feels that she truly belongs and everything is falling into place. Until she has a waking dream about the past and the woman that has lived in the house before. Is she going insane and hallucinating? Or is she traveling into the past? The expertly drawn characters and setting are what drew me in, but what kept me reading was the mystery of the past. Kearsley is one of the best gothic fiction authors!

A very good read until the end. I thought the ending seemed to be the author running out of interest in the book and just ending it.

This is one of my favourite books and I have read it several times since my husband purchased it for me shortly after it was originally released. I really love the characters and the setting.

Just beginning to explore Kearsley and so far this is my favorite book. What a journey and I didn't see the end coming. This is my summer to read time travel novels and Kearsley is a gifted writer. In this particular book I loved how Julia actually 'time-travelled'.

Pretty good book, I like the historical aspect.. I haven't read any of Kearsley's other books but now I think I will.

Julia buys a house without having seen the inside and when she moves in, she begins getting flashbacks about a woman who lived there a long time ago. This is an incredible, wonderful story with a great romance too. Highly recommended.

Even though Kearsley's books have the same basic premise (historical, house, love, time travel of some sort) I just enjoy all of them. I think I liked The Winter Sea best, but this one's a close second!

I picked this book up simply because I thought the cover was intriguing. As I read the book I soon realized that it was definately not the type of book I would have normaly read. There is a supernatural element to the book (something that I'm not very keen on), however the author does an excellent job at transporting the reader to modern England and 1700s England. It was a book that was difficult for me to put down. This would be a great book to take while on summer vacation.
