Overview

The Oklahoma mansion was built by a man mourning his beloved. It is a beautiful monument to their devotion; and for Elizabeth Richards, it seems the perfect place to begin again after the death of her grandmother.

But when she arrives, she feels an eerie certainty that she has been here before...and that her recent dreams of star-crossed lovers were not really dreams at all....

John Richards, descendant of the mansion's builder, turns out to be the very image of the man in Elizabeth's dreams. But he is also her rival for the estate, hostile and angry before they even meet.

Both are bewildered by the attraction between them: an attraction both insist has nothing to do with their present-day lives or their present-day selves.

They realize only reluctantly that they are tied inescapably to the past, and that their future depends on them finding a way to heal a ghost's broken heart.

Like the author's other two Pitchlyn County books, The Covenant and A Little Peace and Quiet, Evermore is set in the dreaming hills of Oklahoma where past and present seem not so very far apart, and the land is almost as much a character in the story as the people are.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Moon's ( In Name Only ) new tale is based on the familiar theme of lovers who are reincarnated and return to a former home. Here the past lovers are Confederate soldier David Richards and Eliza, the woman who saved his life. Despite their deep love, happiness eludes them in this life, so David orders that his house remain vacant until a female Richards descendant arrives who will ``live in the house, without a job, without any independent income, before inheriting it.'' When Elizabeth Richards arrives to claim the house, she has been having strange dreams and finds that her distant cousin, John, resembles David. Elizabeth is thwarted in her plan to inherit it by Stanley McCollum, the estate's manager, and by John, who hopes to raze the old house. Elizabeth is attracted to but wary of John--he may even be responsible for her being dragged to court for a sanity hearing, a scene far more fantastic than reincarnation. While the Eliza/David story occupies much of the book, it feels like mere scaffolding for the Elizabeth/John story. Nevertheless, this one should find favor among romance readers who enjoy stories with a time travel or New Age spin. (Feb.)
