Libby Leverett owns an old mansion she loves despite its dilapidated condition, and she's working hard to fix it up. She's engaged, but her businessman fiance, whom she respects but may not really love, insists she sell the place; he'd never live there. She loves the building, though, and she starts looking for information about its past. James Mohr, the owner of the house in 1842, kept a journal that she's able to retrieve from the local library. Libby finds that he, too faced a problem, and he sought to work it out by writing that dairy. Libby sits at the same desk he used more than century before to try to write out her own problem, wishing at the same time that she could solve his. As she sits and thinks of what he wrote and writes her own piece, she fells into a stupor and wakes up in the study as it was when it was new.
Then starts a fascinating historical novel of life in those old days. Can Libby solve James's problems? Maybe not, but posing as a distant cousin visiting from England, she vows to do her best.
One of the fine things about this book is that a major character is one of the most spectacularly vicious villains you'll ever see. That woman knows what she wants, and insist on getting it every time--until things change.
