Interesting plot but the characters were fickle and the flashbacks were repetitive. Could use some editing to reduce redundant history. mature content
Current day lovers may be reincarnations of earlier lovers. Not well done. Annoying.It started out interesting but I grew tired of it the more I read. I was annoyed with Anna always being weak and tired. She had psychic dreams and always seemed to wake up tired. She would skip breakfast, be late for work, and then be faint at work from lack of food. Frequently her knees were wobbly because of her fears. She was living in poverty, down on her luck in almost every way imaginable. She couldn’t keep a job because she would go into trances when she touched an object that had psychic vibes. For example, in a store, when someone handed her money that had once been involved in a robbery/murder, she went into a trance, scaring her boss, and she was fired. Her apartment had no refrigerator or stove. Her car was a junker with only one door that worked. Her landlord wanted sex. Her ex boyfriend finds her and steals her car so she has to walk to work and is late.The good part of her life starts when Simon, an antiques store owner, sees her gift and hires her to evaluate the authenticity of antique pieces – the perfect job for her. He is ok with her trances and weaknesses.This current day story and a second story are told in a back and forth method throughout the book. The second story is about Simone, Anne and Elspeth, living a few hundred years earlier in England. Current day Anna has psychic dreams about the earlier people, and the readers know early on that Simon and Anna are reincarnated or somehow related to the earlier characters.CAUTION SPOILERS:What I did not like:Anna lies to Simon frequently and about too many unimportant things. She said she ate when she didn’t. She said someone borrowed her car when it was stolen by the ex boyfriend. He knew she had a few clients she did psychic work for, but when one client wanted to see her she lied to Simon about it. She wouldn’t tell him about her dreams which were related to her and Simon. She did not tell him she was pregnant.After Anna has sex with Simon, Cheryl tells Anna some lies which suggest that Simon doesn’t want her. The lies cause Anna to leave her job and run away from Simon (my pet peeve: conflict due to inaccurate assumptions). In addition, Anna’s ethics are terrible, she owes Simon a lot of money and decides not to stay to pay it off but to run away. When Simon finds her, he wants to talk, but Anna says no. She comes back but doesn’t want to hear his truths instead of believing Cheryl’s words. I was annoyed that the conflict was drawn out in this way.The ending had me shaking my head with distaste. When he admits he loves her and she is confused, he thinks she doesn’t want him. It appears that he plans to throw himself off the roof. She sees him and stops him. Then she is afraid somehow and flees, running toward the stairs and falls down the stairs, almost killing herself.In the early story, I hated the reasons for the major plot line, the basis of the entire story. Anne loved Daffyd. Elspeth loved Simone. Anne decides to marry Simone because someone else wanted him. Simone realizes Anne his wife doesn’t want him, but Simone refuses to acknowledge the truth, because he doesn’t want to admit that he made a mistake by choosing the wrong woman to marry. I wasted my time reading this?Believe it or not, there are still a few things I have not given away, which will leave something of interest for those who may wish to read the book.Story length: 240 pages. Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: 5. Length of sex scenes: 0.7 to 4.3 pages. Setting: current day US and England and a few hundred years earlier in England. Copyright: 2005.

This book was an ok read. I enjoy historical fictions the best so the back and forth between modern an historical was new for me. I got irritated because right as the historical part was getting good, the author would switch to modern times and spend forever developing that line. When I realized that it wasn't really a historical fiction but rather a modern fiction with historical flashbacks, I was able to enjoy the book more. The climax was really good and I stayed up late to finish it. I wouldn't read it again but I don't feel like I wasted my time reading it.
I enjoyed this story. It was fantastical, and there were some clichés, but it was still a fun read.
This book was a roller coaster. It was also a bit too long, too many repetitive flashbacks.
