When Lilacs Bloom by Nell Duvall

Changing history won't be easy--not even when Libby goes back in time to save the man she loves.

Libby Leverett senses nothing evil in Mohr House and refuses to believe in a murderous ghost. Her beloved home is her treasure, and she won't entertain her fiance's demands that she sell the old place. Things have changed between Walter and her, and when she finds James Mohr's letters and journals from 1842, she discovers an intelligent and sensitive man engaged to someone he doesn't love. The more Libby learns, the more she feels James is everything she's ever wanted-and everything that Walter is not.

But when she writes a letter to James and leaves it in one of his old books in the study, strange things happen. The letter disappears.

When Libby learns that James's fiancée dies and her vengeful mother accuses him of killing her, Libby can't stand to watch the horrible scene play out. If a letter reached him, maybe she can too...

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.
