I fumbled a bit with the change of viewpoint and time in the first two chapters, trying to find my way, but Wordsworth's "Daffodils" renewed my interest, for I too find poetry liberating.
This book is an absorbing exploration into the paranormal, when, against an atmospheric backdrop of London, Margot, an American, tries psychotherapy and self-hypnosis in an attempt to prove her own sanity.
And in the end, I did not have to re-read the beginning!
A well written, nicely rounded story which in the end proves that love prevails.

I don't know how Rumer does it but she has such a way with words and descriptions and melding the past with the present and visa versa. When the book first open, we meet Margot, a young American in a volatile relationship who decides to take a massive leap into the unknown and relocate to London to stay with a friend. She ends her relationship, packs her bags and heads across the pond but before she does her and her friends sit down and play with an Ouija board and therein begins the mystery...

After that point, Margot has a riddle to solve and everything proceeds from there. I loved the mystical element of this book as well as the paranormal. You couldn't get a book more up my street if you tried!

I knew as soon as I read the Ouija scene I knew that it was all change from there and I think Margot did too, deep down. Once she has moved and settled in she starts to sense and see things in the flat she is living in with her friend Rand. I loved the way Rumer wrote these scenes. You really feel what Margot is going through and you see it too. I had a perfect representation of the space in my mind, I just had to close my eyes and I could see it all.

While we see Margot's life in the modern day, we also see the life of the person who Margot is connected to in the past. I loved the scenes set in the past, in the house that now houses the flat that Margot lives in and my favourite one was at the end when everything came together and we finally saw the story for what it was and how everything was connected to Margot. It was beautifully written and really gave the perfect closure for the book.

Rumer does what she does best in this book: telling the stories of two timeframes in an utterly perfect way and I really can't wait to see what she writes next but I know one thing for sure: I will be reading it.

After the recent emotional break up with her boyfriend, Margot needs a break. She decides to trade in her familiar life in Chicago for a summer in unfamiliar London. Margot hopes that her time away from home will help her clear her mind and get her life back in order. What she never expected was to feel more confused and lost than ever before. As soon as she arrives at Rand’s place, her colleague’s apartment in an old Victorian building, her life slowly starts to spin out of control. She sees and feels things she can’t explain then at some point an unknown force compels her to visit the grave of a woman named Charlotte at a local cemetery.

Margot begins to think that she may be possessed and that her feelings of despair and depression are not her own but somehow connected to Charlotte. In order to save herself she must discover what happened to Charlotte in the past.

This is a haunting story and a little bit dark. The characters were well described so that you can feel their confusion and despair. The writing is good but I found the story difficult to follow. At times it was hard to understand what was happening as the story kept switching between timelines and characters. This made it confusing. I understand this may have been the author’s intention but ultimately it was distracting, making it hard to really get involved in the book.

I really enjoyed the author’s previous book “Seven for a Secret” which has a bit of a paranormal element and is a lighter story overall. This book, however, is a lot darker and focuses mainly on the paranormal. Therefore fans of paranormal or haunted ghost stories may enjoy it.

At loose ends in the middle of her twenty-something life, Margot goes for broke…. jettisoning her American boyfriend and quitting her American job as she seeks a temporary safe haven in the London flat of an old friend (and intriguing male mentor).

Alas for Margot, she soon realizes there’s no ‘nurturing safety’ that she was hoping to find in London—only more questions. And very unsettling questions at that. Margot is starting to feel as if she’s living somebody else’s life…. a woman who is somehow connected to her from long-ago Victorian London. Is this woman a ghost? An illusion? Or somehow connected—via time and space—to Margot’s very soul?

In the face of these mysteries, Margot turns snappish, and then protesting, then very frightened. She starts questioning just about everything about her life (….including the fact that maybe it’s no longer really ‘her’ life at all? Maybe her spirit is indeed melding with and subsuming into that of Charlotte Pidgeon, the mysterious, long-dead Victorian.)

Which girlfriend, which counselor, which mentor, and which lover can truly be ‘trusted to be what they’re purported to be’ in Margot’s life? Is Margot gradually sliding into madness or… something more insidious—and much worse?

Neither the reader nor Margot can be truly sure what is really happening until the very end of the book.

The story shimmers from Past to Present, from Today to the Victorian era and back again, as all Time and Possibilities blend into an all-encompassing Eternal Now.

This is great book to curl up with on a bright and sunny day…but I warn you… don’t try reading it in the middle of the night. It’ll keep you up with thoughts best visited only in broad daylight.
