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 But now Richard has become withdrawn, and Celia is constantly haunted by a vague dread.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.
This is a wonderful book. I found it at a book sale and was intrigued by the blurb.
I found that I could not put it down as I began to take the journey into the outback with the main character. This journey is as much of the land as it is of the soul.
When the last page came, I wished that it was all real and had happened.
Now, I always pick this up and keep it to give to a friend.
Don't be put off by the title, read it!
This is NOT the audio-cassette, it is the VHS TAPE of both The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies and Mrs. Tittle-mouse and The Tale of Two Bad Mice and Johnny Town-Mouse. A lovely family film produced by Goodtimes. It includes a family discussion guide on the sleeve. Runs approx. 53 min.
