As with all of Karen Macleod's books to date, this is excellent. Great characters, time travel, plot twists and a satisfying conclusion, along with deep historical knowledge and a witty and fluent writing style - what more could you want?!

Very badly written - no real explanation as to the mass time travelling, why the modern day characters were intermittently visible / invisible to the historical characters. No background to the instant love match between the heroine and the widowed hero, no real reason for the soon to be ex-husband and his miserable family to even be included in the plot. Badly written, badly edited and quite frankly a real waste of time and money!

I started off loving this book. The characters were well described and the atmosphere was brilliant. The storyline was probably influenced by Daphne du Maurier's House on the Strand, which is one of my favourite novels.
However, as the story progressed (even though it is fantasy) it seemed to be rushing to get in all the fantastical scenarios possible and began to get annoying as it lost it's way in the realms of the impossible.
A real shame as it had so many good ideas to be a thought provoking novel.
Saying that - in the main it was enjoyable

Family go to a gatehouse for a holiday, and strange timeslips keep happening, until they seem to take over. A fast moving, story, which makes it difficult to get anything done, as you just want to read and read. You develop an afinity with the characters, having your own likes and dislikes. A must for anyone who likes time-slip, reincarnation, ghosts..

I WASN'T SURE I WAS GOING TO ENJOY THIS BOOK AS MUCH AS HER TRILOGY, BUT AGAIN, I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. A CLEVER IDEA TO SET IT IN THE MODERN DAY AND HAVE PEOPLE TRANSPORTED BACK IN TIME, WHICH MADE THE EXPERIENCE OF HISTORY VERY REALISTIC.

I really enjoyed this book, no it's not going to win any literary prize but it was great fun. You think you know what's going on then there is a twist near the end which I didn't see coming. A gentle, fun book that I couldn't put down.

Imaginative, thrilling - I couldn't put it down! Also historical facts were authentic. the characters became real. A very worthwhile read, and as usual the author came up with something completely different.

I enjoyed this book and it kept me turning the pages despite having a fair idea of the outcome. It was the journey that held me. Pity it was so short as I had read it in a day.
