"A young woman's connection to antiques takes her on a magical adventure back to seventeenth century England where she is tasked with righting an injustice to save an innocent girl's life"-- Provided by publisher.
Xanthe and her mother Flora leave London behind for a fresh start, taking over an antique shop in the historic town of Marlborough. Xanthe has always had an affinity with some of the antiques she finds: touching them gives her a sense of the past they come from and the stories they hold. When she has an intense connection to a beautiful silver chatelaine, she is transported back to the seventeenth century. A ghost reveals the antique's origins, and tasks Xanthe with putting right the injustice in its story to save an innocent girl's life-- at the cost of Flora's life. Amid the turbulent days of 1605 Xanthe meets architect Samuel Appleby. He may be the person who can help her succeed-- and the reason she can't bring herself to leave. -- adapted from back cover

Worth a read but not a book to read again. It reminds me of the Outlander series minus the long ancestry of magically gifted people. Basically she can often see or feel the history in objects and when a restless spirit uses her to change history for her wronged daughter, the story begins. There is some romance but it doesn’t overwhelm the storyline. A nice summer read

A light and enjoyable read. Bits of mystery, romance, and lore. The moving through portal in time has slight resemblance to the series "Outlander". Well plotted with fine conclusion.
