Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read This book was recommended to me by several friends. Not being a fan of historical novels, I bought it anyway. What a pleasant surprise. It is fabulous. Over 1000 pages but I could not stop reading it. What made it interesting was it kept bringing us back to present day. Then through regression and hypnosis the main characters are reliving their former lives. They are correcting old wounds from the past in present day. Sounds odd but it isn't and has a wonderful ending. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I read this book over 30 years ago and enjoyed every page.  The cross over between the different centuries make the story totally grasping, therefore after 30 years, I plan to put this on my ereader.  Mainly Barbara Erskine is a fabulous writer and during this span of years, I have recommended it to many friends.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Definitely flawed This book was ok at best. There was something compelling that caused me to finish it, but the characters were extremely frustrating and weak and the story was not believable. This edition was also riddled with errors which should have been caught in editing - there was either a spelling mistake or grammatical error on nearly every page, without exaggeration. I'm glad that I read it to see what all the hype was about, but I think effusive praise of the book would be misguided. Borrow it from the library if you want to read it, but I wouldn't buy it given what I know now.
