Eva returns to Cornwall, to Trelowarth, the house where she spent her summers as a child. Her friends, now grown, still live there and she is happy to be "home" with them. Only it isn't really the same and soon she discovers that she is drawn back in time, to Trelowarth in 1712, where she meets the Butler brothers, one of whom she falls in love with. There is much to be feared, however. They are smugglers and part of a dangerous conspiracy to restore James Stuart to the throne of England. Eva has no control over when she is taken to the past and when she is returned to her own time, but in the end finds she must make a decision about where she wants to be.
The set up of this book is a bit slow, but rich with lovely images. Once the paranormal aspects of the story fully kicked in, I was swept away. I enjoyed the characters and found the story to be a real page turner. I gave this book five stars on Goodreads.
