Alienor: She is silent no longer...awakened by a frivolous holiday seance on the island of Crete. Beautiful and lost, she has come to Rafe from a distant dark time...calling him "Richard," her crusader, her lover...her betrayer.
Rafe's obsession with the mysterious Alienor draws him to a forgotten meadow in the quiet Kent countryside...and to Nell...herb grower, healer...the living image of the sad, tormented spirit who haunts his dreams. Strangers yet soulmates, Rafe and Nell are predestined to be one...united by an inexplicable and irresistible attraction. But ancient secrets and an ageless cry for vengeance threaten their love...leading them through the shaddows to the perilous edge of a territory timeless, terrifying...and unknown.
