Synopsis of book»

Winner of the Catherine Cookson Award

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.

What Critics Have Said»

'Another 5-star winner!... I couldn't stop reading: torn between finding out what happens as soon as possible and never wanting the story to end...Mariana was a gorgeous book, flawlessly interweaving past and present. How everything flowed and tied together was absolutely masterful. The ending was just perfection, that even after I finished the book and went to bed, I turned the lights back on several times to read the last few pages. I just want to read the rest of Susanna Kearsley's books right now!'Readin' and Dreamin' Blog

Susanna Kearsley's 'Mariana' was one of those books that I curled up with in a comfy chair and didn't come up for air until I had turned to the last page. Haunting and romantic, with elements of reincarnation and time travel, this was a wonderful novel in the tradition of Daphne du Maurier and Mary Stewart....highly recommended for those who love stories where the present is tied to the past, suspense, and an old-fashioned second chance love story with a two-hankie ending.Joanne

I really enjoyed this book form start to finish. I couldn't put it down. When I did get to the last page I didn't want it to end. If only real life was as interesting...Miss L Bradbury, Manchester
