Meanwhile, Sylvie sees a picture from a magazine of a male model on a coastline. She declares that this is where she is from. That she lived there. Other puzzling tidbits occur - Sylvie's declaring that she lived in another house, a nicer house than theirs. Her refusal to call her mother Mum, instead calling her Grace. Her increasing nightmares, and her sheer terror of water, particularly on her face.
Grace, in desperation, seeks out a psychology professor who researches children who may have psychic abilities or might have experienced past lives. And although Grace's few supportive friends are against it (in fact, they think she's crazy), she decides to take a trip with him and Sylvie to Coldharbour, Scotland, to visit the place that Sylvie claims she has lived before. What exactly is her mysterious connection to this coastline?
That's all I'm going to tell you, because if you're interested, I don't want there to be any spoilers. But you'll get your intriguing cottages, your stormy weather, your creepy cliffs in this read. For two days, I got nothing done while I read this book. It's fantastic. If you like gothic style, you would love this book. Check it out!
Disclaimer - I'm reviewing this book because I loved it, and thought I'd share the joy of reading it. I didn't receive anything for doing so.
