About this title

Synopsis:

This is the story of Charlotte Woods, who once found an old photograph of a ruined house. She felt drawn to the ruins, and her unexpected good fortune of winning the lottery enables her to fulfil her dream of rebuilding it. When she visits the local pub, she meets Adam Dennington, with whom she was destined to fall in love. Adam tells her about the haunting of the house she has just rebuilt. She is to find out for herself whether it is true or just an old wives' tale. Then she finds an old pendant with the picture of a man painted on the centre stone, which, according to legend, Adam says was cursed by an old witch. Charlotte gradually realises that she has been reincarnated and is living Fern Forrester's life in her dreams. She experiences the fear of being accused of witchcraft and chased by Cromwell's men through the forest in seventeenth-century England, in search of the man she loves. The hand of God saved Fern from a cruel death the first time, and she offers Edmund another chance. Will his gallant effort save her the second time?

About the Author:

The author was born in Luton in 1932. She was born blind, but this disability has not prevented her from living a full and active life. When she reached school age, she was sent away to be educated at a school for the blind in Buckinghamshire. She was given an ordinary elementary education, which included learning to read and write in Braille. At the age of twenty, she married and had a family of four. During the time she was raising her children, she applied for a guide dog. Throughout her long life, she has known and loved five guide dogs, who have all been as dear to her as any child and the greatest help in her daily life when it came to getting about. At the age of eighty-two, she now lives in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in a small bungalow with her cat. My thanks to Rachel Blackmore of WTWT (Weston Turville Wells for Tanzania), a poverty relief charity working with the Maasai of Tanzania.
