Julia Becket moves to the country from London, and finds her perfect home in the shape of Greywethers a 17th century cottage.
Right from the start we get the sense that the house chose Julia rather than the other way round, and soon Julia realizes all is not quite as it seems. She starts having strange experiences seemingly transported back to the past and into the life of a woman called Mariana.
I quite enjoyed this story, and liked the characters and gentle love story. However I only gave it three stars, This is primarily because of the narrator, Carolyn Bonnyman. I found her voice too monotone, and lacking emotion, especially when there was a lot of dialogue. When different characters were speaking there wasn't enough difference made between them and this could be a bit confusing, as in a pub scene when there were four people all having a conversation together.
I still enjoyed it though and found the story entertaining, with enough mystery about it to keep me interested.

Although purchasing the Book originally for my Wife, I decided to have a break from my usual Seafaring & Crime Audiobooks.
Well! What a surprise this one turned out to be!
Carolyn Bonnyman's intimate reading style made me feel that she was sitting opposite me over a cup of coffee and telling me this tale in an almost whispered voice!
Her ability to enhance the somewhat eerie setting just with her voice was quite captivating.
Although I would not normally have selected such a Book for myself, I am so glad I did!
