Rose Garden Synopsis:
Eva Ward returns to the only place she truly belongs, the old house on the Cornish coast, seeking happiness in memories of childhood summers. There she finds mysterious voices and hidden pathways that sweep her not only into the past, but also into the arms of a man who is not of her time.
But Eva must confront her own ghosts, as well as those of long ago. As she begins to question her place in the present, she comes to realize that she too must decide where she really belongs.
Deet’s Review from August 29, 2012:
“Whatever time we have,” he said, “it will be time enough.” (This line is to die for. How utterly romantic.)
The romance here is slow to develop and there is a question of will she or won’t she. The fact that Eva had no control over her time travel until late in the book added to the excitement. There are surprises that are hinted at and unfold to satisfy our guesses. There is action, pathos, friendship and love. This is the kind of book that doesn’t leave you when the last page is read. It raises the “what if” questions and we really want to know what happens next and does it happen to anyone else. Absolutely delightful and this will go on my this year’s “top reads” list.
This $1.99 sale may only be for today so jump on this one.
Description from amazon.com:
The first time Julia Beckett saw Greywethers she was only five, but she knew at once that it was her house. Now, twenty-five years later, by some strange chance, she has just become the new owner of the sixteenth-century Wilshire farmhouse. But Julia soon begins to suspect that more than coincidence has brought her there. As if Greywethers were a porthal between worlds, she finds herself abruptly transported back in time. Stepping into seventeenth-century England, Julia becomes Mariana, a beautiful young woman struggling against danger and treachery, and battling a forbidden love for Richard de Mornay, handsome forebear of the present squire of Crofton Hall. Each time Julia travels back, she becomes more enthralled with the past, falling ever deeper in love with Richard…until one day she realizes Mariana’s life threatens to eclipse her own–and that she must find a way to lay the past to rest, or risk losing a chance for love in her own time.

Rating: 5 glorious stars
sexy rating: 3
Here we have a ghost, reincarnation, time travel a heartrending love story of soulmates all wrapped up in exquisite prose. I could not put this book down, I had to read until the last page no matter the late hour. There is an element of subtle danger that culminates in heart pounding action and suspense. The ending is satisfying and romantic.
Romantic quote: “Ordinarily,” he went on, evenly, “I’m a patient man. But I think I’ve waited long enough.”……”Time we both stopped waiting, and began to live.”…. “These are your beautiful days, Julia Beckett.” He promised me softly.
I recommend this book to all romantics who like their stories well written and totally engrossing.
She is my new favorite author. I thought her book THE ROSE GARDEN was my favorite until I read this one although I have loved each of her novels.
