I enjoyed this book a lot. It was very well written as I knew it would as I have the original in a book form. Love a well written and thought out plot with great characters. Hope the other books she has written come out soon.

I love time travel romance. I probably mention that in every review I do of one. I love them, but they can be tricky.
They can have solutions at the end that are not agreeable to me and what I would want for the couple.
So I tend to read them with bated breath.
Thankfully this turned out to be one of the good ones. Quite good.
I understand that this novel was completely revised from an earlier published version and I have never read the old one.

I don't want to say to much as far as story goes as

I have read THE ORIGINAL several times since it's debut in 1999, so I'm skeptical to hear that there's a newer version out there, especially when everyone is yapping away about that new one and not so much the original.

SO LET ME REVIEW THE ORIGINAL!

This book has been my favorite time swept novel by far, and after all these years from my first read back in 1999, it has stuck with me. No matter what I've read, I've always been able to recall this story in precise detail.

Very enjoyable read! The characters really drew me in, I found myself pulled into the story and worried how things would play out for Gavin and Julia. Definitely a few twists and turns along the way. I would recommend to anyone looking for a historical time travel romance!

I must say that I read the January 2014 kindle version of this book. (There seems to be another version with a different ending and/or storyline) I enjoyed the premise of this book. I found the hero Gavin McKinnon truly drool worthy. He was strong, smart but also very sweet, with a hint of slightly tortured thrown in. Our heroine Julia is visiting Dunmore Castle in Scotland with her grams, and her 8 Year old niece Claire. Julia meets the handsome Gavin in ghost form. He convinces her to go back ...more

I always hate it when I can't finish a story and I suppose I'm going to say only what others have said. I reached halfway and had to give up because of the endless reference to what a 'hunk' Gavin was, how beautiful Julia was and how they lusted after each other. This became very tedious by chapter eighteen. I got it by chapter two so I didn't need to hear it over and over again. I wanted the characters to get on with the story and it would have been interesting if Gavin had worn something other ...more

I gave it 3 instead of 4 stars because I thought it had a bit of a slow start setting the characters up before the time travel and I had mixed thoughts about the happily ever after ending.
She learned from his mother's long ago journals that their family line died out. When the hero's ghost comes to her and asks her to go back to the regency period to save his young son from death, she agrees. Once there, she finds she must help the widowed hero overcome his well earned mistrust because of self-s

Bark's Book Nonsense
Beyond Forever is a book that held much promise. The beginning and the end of the book are its best sections because the characters are fun, charming and heartwarming. But, sadly, the book wasted far too much of it's middle with the characters caught in a seemingly endless cycle of annoying "I hate you but, darn it, my traitorous body still wants you oh-so-bad" behavior. As a result, what could have been an exceptional read turned out to be yet another average one. Still, if you love time ...more

I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. This is a really good book. Its starts out a bit slow but once she goes back it picks up. It's like having your cake and eating it too. You get to read about someone living two lives and what happens in both. The story has everything, love, mystery, and murder. Gavin you will just fall in love with. And in the end you walk away with closer. I won this book but would feel the same even if I bought it.

If you have never read Debra Dier you are missing a treat. I have read almost every book she has written. I have not had time to list them on my shelf, but I will continue to work on that.

This novel is a time travel romance with lots of intrigue.
Loved it!! Give it a try. You many find you have discovered another favorite author.
(Seriously, how can you only have one favorite romance author?) :)

If you can make me cry you get 5 stars.

If you can make me cry you get 5 stars.

A very well done novel done in believable Recency style. I didn't know who done until the very end. If you can keep an inveterate reader of romance and mystery for over sixty years AND make her cry, you have done your job as a writer.

This is my first time to read a book by Debra Dier. Excellent book! Debra had me going through out the whole book as to if it was a dream or really happened. Love a love story and this one is a classic! Beautifully written. She wove current day with 1816 time period flawlessly. I'm off to get Scoundrel next and plan on getting all of her books!

Love lives forever

In spite of death and betrayal, dishonor and disillusionment, despite the spans of centuries love finds two soul mates allowing them to right some major wrongs in the Regency Era, separate only to meet up in present day. Taking this journey through time was well worth the trip!

I'm a sucker for Time Travel Romance novels and this one delivered.
I loved how one small action led to so many miracles.
And the ending was great!!!

Read this on paperback years ago, the cover for the updated version sure looks way hotter than the old faded one I got here beside me.

Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. The first time I saw a reader mention my possible demise in an online review, chills rippled over my skin. It is odd to read someone say she loves you and she thinks you must have died because nothing new has been published in years. To that reader and to anyone else who may have mourned my passing I say: I have been buried in all the wonderful ...more
