MarianaeBook - 2012
The first time Julia Beckett saw Greywethers she was only five, but she knew that it was her house. And now that she's at last become its owner, she suspects that she was drawn there for a reason. As if Greywethers were a portal between worlds, she finds herself transported into seventeenth-century England, becoming Mariana, a young woman struggling against danger and treachery, and battling a forbidden love.
Each time Julia travels back, she becomes more enthralled with the past...until she realizes Mariana's life is threatening to eclipse her own, and she must find a way to lay the past to rest or lose the chance for happiness in her own time.

'“These are your beautiful days, Mariana Farr,” he said gently, and then his shoulders blocked the sunlight as he lowered his head to mine and kissed me. He must have known that it was the first time I had been kissed by a man. I had no idea what to do, no idea how to respond to the flood of strange and new sensations. His touch was sweetly, exquisitely, achingly wonderful, and when it ended I felt robbed. He looked down at me and laughed, and took my face in his hands and said something, low and in French, some phrase I couldn’t catch, and his face blurred before my eyes as he bent to kiss me again…"-excerpt, Mariana
“Please. I am a Scotsman, after all. You can’t walk half a mile in Scotland without treading on the coattails of a ghost or two. But I’ve not yet seen one up at the Hall.”-Iain
Julia: “But I thought that the ghost upstairs was still in residence . It’s impossible, isn’t it, for a soul to be in two places at once?”
Alfreda Hutherson: “There is no ghost upstairs. Not anymore. What you felt up there was simply the aura of what had been. She left that in the room, you see, much as a person casts a shadow on a wall.”
