In a country at war, two people forbidden by class to be together fell in love. That love ended in death. Now, a young jewelry designer, heiress to a large corporation, finds herself stuck in their story.

Jillian Llewellyn loves her family and the company her grandfather built. Having lost her husband a year before, shes immersed herself in work. Then, one Halloween, a tarot card reader frightens her with visions of horror, and Robert Marston, the newest member of the Llewellyn Enterprises staff, stirs feelings of loveand fear.

Suddenly, terrifying nightmares haunt Jillian and danger seems to follow her. Robert is never far away either, and his constant suspicions about her family are not something she wants to hear. Neither is he ready to accept that he is getting advice from ghosts, fortune tellers and an age-old book describing events remarkably similar to all that is happening now.

Once again Ms. Graham delivers sheer delight. She masterfully moves from past to present and back again, interweaving stories and dropping clues with skillful precision. This is a story worth reading and rereading this holiday season. (Nov., 304 pp., $22.95)
