I read this book via hoopla, an electronic lending service available through my local public library. I do not know the author nor have I ever had any communication with her about this book or any other subject. And of course I am an author of romance novels. Just want to make sure all that discl...

This is a beautifully written romance. It could probably be considered a clean romance as there are no graphic descriptions of sex in it. The story is told in two time periods throughout the book. My only complaint is that the main character's romantic interest isn't really given a lot of time in...

Once again I was caught up in the imagery created by the words of Susanna Kearsley. This is a quiet book, meaning that not much happens. There isn't crazy drama. It's a story about Eva who ends up in Cornwall, a place that represents happiness. She is grieving and trying to find her place in thi...

This is the older book being published (it was two years earlier), but I...

LOVE! I could not put this down and found myself getting up early just so I had time to read before work. The story revolves around Eva, a woman who has just lost her sister, the only family she had. She brings her ashes to Trelowarth, the home of friends they used to visit for the summers. Eva soon...

This story had a pretty good plot but too much description of details and I skimmed lots of paragraphs throughout. The action at the beginning was slow until it started in on the time travel and got rather interesting. Eva returns to the place of he childhood summers where she fades back in time a...
