This is a wonderful book!
It has been some time since I read this book, so I'm a little vague on the details, but I remember how the story drew me in and brought me to a rich new world.
I can't remember exactly when the story is set but it is in more restrictive times, when a lady's reputation was everthing and the smallest thing could ruin it. And men ruled.
The three daughters of an archaeologist must join him on a small island where he is currently working on a temple complex. One daughter is frail from an accident in childhood and also very sensitive to things that others don't feel or see. In this new land she begins to see into another life even older than the temple her father is working on.
There has been a suspicious death on the island and a mystery man has come to investigate, though he doesn't want anyone to know it. But he is helpless against the forces that draw him to the frail daughter of a man he doesn't trust.
I wish I could give a better summary, but believe me this is an absolutely amazing book!
It's rare in this genre to find a book that captures the reader's interest on so many levels. A novice angel is at work weaving a tapestry made up of the lives and fates of each character. Three bizarre murders occur in quick succession. An archeological find of momentous proportions has been discovered, only to have all clues as to WHAT it is and WHERE it is eliminated after the demise of the first victim. The primary female character, Summer, is developed so well that the reader cannot help but identify and feel deeply her restrictions and to literally breathe better with each step she makes toward the mental and emotional freedom she needs to be whole again. The story surprises toward the end with an unexpected familial development. Thrown into this mix is Summer's ability to see and hear the women who lived on the Greek island at The Court of Three Sisters while she is within the body of one of them. Oh, and of course we have romance, with an adventurer archeologist, Col, whose beloved brother met an untimely end as the result of being falsely accused of a crime. Even that long ago event is thoroughly explored, brought again to life, and satisfactorally resolved. I highly recommend this book!
