In Another Life

Click on the book cover to know more about the book

If she was in Paris when the weather was fine, Lia loved to bring a picnic lunch to the peaceful , groomed gardens of the square. Though nothing remained of the citadel of the Knights Templar, she imagined its imposing square tower surrounded by high crenellated walls; she could hear the hoofbeats of approaching horses and the clanking of armor and ringing of steel as knights practiced swordplay in the courtyard.

SYNOPSIS

Historian Lia Carrer has finally returned to southern France, determined to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. But instead of finding solace in the region’s quiet hills and medieval ruins, she falls in love with Raoul, a man whose very existence challenges everything she knows about life–and about her husband’s death. As Raoul reveals the story of his past to Lia, she becomes entangled in the echoes of an ancient murder, resulting in a haunting and suspenseful journey that reminds Lia that the dead may not be as far from us as we think. Steeped in the rich history and romantic landscape of the Languedoc region, In Another Life is a story of love that conquers time and the lost loves that haunt us all.

PRAISE FOR IN ANOTHER LIFE

“Delicate and haunting, romantic and mystical, In Another Life is a novel with an extraordinary sense of place. Fans swept away by Diana Gabaldon’s 18th-century Scotland will want to explore Julie Christine Johnson’s 13th-century Languedoc.” – Greer Macallister, author of The Magician’s Lie

“In this lovely novel, Johnson shows us the redemptive power of love and second chances through the ages. Evocative of Outlander, In Another Life is a thrilling combination of romance, adventure, and history.” – Margaret Dilloway, author of Sisters of Heart and Snow and How to Be an American Housewife
