"reincarnation" revisited

First I will add, spoiler alert. This is a book where reincarnation takes place. At least, that is how I viewed it. I am not inclined to adhere to this thinking but what a wonderful novel came out of mixing characters from the past and present. It was the first novel I read by Susanna and have continued to read everything she publishes but, it is safe to say that Marianna continues to be my favourite.
