A beautifully written novel with a dark, gothic story-line. Really not to be missed for fans of dark, paranormal romances.
Beautifully writen book. Language flows along very well. The book investigates reincarnation and travels you back to past lives of the character during the reign of the Tudors. I like Wintrop Women and Avalon better but this is very good as well. If you have never read Anya Seton I recommend picking up one of her books. She much better than many of our recent historical fiction writers.
From Amazon.com (Average rating - 4.5/5 stars):
This unforgettable story of undying love combines mysticism, suspense, mystery, and romance into a web of good and evil that stretches from 16th-century England to the present day. Richard Marsdon marries a young American woman named Celia, brings her to live at his English estate, and all seems to be going well. But now Richard has become withdrawn, and Celia is constantly haunted by a vague dread. When she suffers a breakdown and wavers between life and death, a wise doctor realizes that only by forcing Celia to relive her past can he enable her to escape her illness. Celia travels back 400 years in time to her past life as a beautiful but doomed servant. Through her eyes, we see the England of the Tudors, torn by religious strife, and experience all the pageantry, lustiness, and cruelty of the age. As in other historical romance titles by this author, the past comes alive in this flamboyant classic novel.
I actually have the BOOK CLUB version of this book, which doesn't appear to have an ISBN number. However, it is published by the same company and has the same cover.
This was a book I read a long time ago but still recall how very much I enjoyed. The story captivates you and you become enthralled with what happens. From a background not strong in reincarnation, it was fascinating.
