Goodreads Summary:
Does déjà vu have a deeper meaning?A puzzling gift from a stranger in a hat shop. Whisperings and footsteps in a dim luxury hotel. Dreams that transport to elegant parties where champagne flows like water. Kat is both frightened and intrigued by the events that have plagued her since she arrived in London, in a final effort to save herself from anorexia and recover from her latest suicide attempt.
Most disturbing is an encounter with a mysterious woman who introduces Kat to Will. And this lovely messenger has information she desperately wants to share with Kat: an incident from more than a century ago that could transform Kat’s future. But will Kat listen?
A story of the role of destiny in life... and of righting the wrongs of the past.

My Review: 
In recovery for anorexia and a suicide attempt, Katherine is relying on her journal and charcoal drawings as her current forms of therapy. While on a trip to London to promote her art, she becomes intwined in the strange goings on at her hotel. After meeting a woman named Destiny, she finds herself involved in a family feud and faced with the possibility of past lives. I loved the settings in this story: grand hotels, intimate apartment sitting rooms, and bustling little tea rooms. I also found the storyline to be a combination soap opera (who's related to who and how are they involved) and seance (past lives, predictions, love stories.) I read this short novel in a single morning and would recommend this fast read to anyone stuck in a reading rut.
