Past Perfect

book | 2017

We can all wish for that special gift . . .

Sybil and Blake Gregory live a well-ordered, predictable Manhattan life – she as a cutting-edge design authority and museum consultant, he in high-tech investments – while raising their teenagers Andrew and Caroline, and six-year-old Charlie. But when Blake is offered a dream job as CEO of a start-up in San Francisco, he accepts it without consulting his wife, and buys a magnificent, historic mansion in Pacific Heights as their new home.

Past and present collide at their elegant mansion when they meet the large and lively family who lived there a century ago. All long dead, but very much alive in spirit – visible to the Gregorys and no one else. Within these enchanted rooms, it is both 1917 and a century later. Have they been given a perfect gift: beloved friends, a chance to relive the past, and the wisdom and grace to shape the future?
