Now that does sound like title-poaching.  Mary Stewart's book set on Corfu
was called "This Rough Magic", wasn't it?  I'm not 100% sure, because I
always confuse TRM with The Moon Spinners, but...

I suppose they could both have got the title independently from the same
source (memory is failing me.  Shakespeare somewhere?), in which case it's
merely carelessness.
