Ruth has returned to Edinburgh after many years of exile, left rootless by the end of her marriage and career and now the death of her father, from whom she had long been estranged. She is faced with the daunting task of clearing his house, believing he had removed all traces of her mother. Yet hidden away in a barely used top-floor room, she finds he had secretly kept a cupboard full of her possessions. Sifting through the ancient papers, Ruth discovers the diary and letters written by her ancestor from the 18th century, Thomas Erskine.

Juliet Beckett believes in destiny. When she moves into Greywethers, a beautiful 16th-century farmhouse, she suspects that more than coincidence has brought her there.

Then she learns of Mariana, a beautiful young woman who lived there 300 years ago. It seems history has been waiting for Julia...

When Eva’s film star sister Katrina dies, she returns to Cornwall to scatter Katrina’s ashes. But the house where she stayed as a child is home not only to her friends the Halletts, but also to the people who lived there in the 18th century. When Eva accepts that she can slip between centuries, she begins to question her place in the present, and comes to realise that she must decide where she really belongs, choosing between the life she knows and the past she feels so drawn towards.

Two books in one was great. If these are the final books in the series I will be very upset. There are some unfinished stories to be told, And many more to make. There is only one issue I have with the series, that is going over what Mercile's main aim is. Fan's of the series know this. I would like to know the origins of mercile, I thought that may happen in the last book, that is why there is more to come.
I love the Narrator on Audible she brings the story to life in so many ways.

The author overall has been sensitive to the main themes of the series which is abuse, retribution, family and love. I would like to see more development of the characters we have gotten to know, and a couple to have a female baby.
As you can see I am a big fan who wants more. So thank you Lauran Dohner for this great series.
