So many time travel stories leave you with more questions than satisfaction... after all, it's hard to keep things matched up right when you mess with time! But Lynn Kurland really does a fantastic job as she has fun with the threads of time. The little hints and subtleties that you'll pick up on your second or third read make it even better than it was the first time through... and for me to really love a book, it has to be good over and over again!
She does such a wonderful job, too, of taking us through the range of questions and answers and emotion that Thomas goes through in this story. Iolanthe's is more hidden then most of Lynn's characters, but the book is still fantastic.
If you never thought you could like a ghost story, try this one out!
Book 7 in the MacLeod series. This is a time travel book. Thomas McKinnon restores a 12 century castle and as he does so he finds the restless spirit of a medieval Scottish woman. She is so haunting that he would do anything and risk everything to make her his forever.
A lovely story, detailing the history and eventual relationship of Thomas McKinnon and Iolanthe MacLeod. Well-written as all Lynn Kurland's novels, but not my favorite of the bunch. I do like the reoccurance of the some of the popular characters and the way the plot intertwines with their stories. A great read!
The moment businessman Thomas McKinnon hears that the ancient, ruined English keep is up for sale, he feels compelled to purchase it. Now he finds himself the proud owner of Thorpewold, in all its dubious splendor. However, ownership of Thorpewold is a bit questionable, for there is a ghost who claims it belongs to her. In 1382 Iolanthe MacLeod was betrayed and murdered in Thorpewold, and her blood binds her to the castle.
Iolanthe is intrigued by Thomas, who not only can see her, but also guesses her true name. As he spends more time restoring his new purchase, he begins to fear that he has found his soulmate several hundred years too late. Is their love doomed, or is there a way to change history?
In a bleak, landlocked keep on the English moors, Iolanthe MacLeod dreams of the seaand of a darkly handsome man to come rescue her. Centuries have passed, and she feels she has waited in vain.
Thomas McKinnon is used to attaining impossible heights, both in business and in the mountains he loves. But when the chance to restore a twelfth-century castle comes his way, he gamely takes hammer in hand and crosses the Atlantic, expecting to find nothing more interesting inside his new home than cobwebs and weeds.
But in that ancient, crumbling castle, the fierce, restless spirit of a medieval Scottish woman lives ona woman so haunting that he would do anything, go anywhere, risk everything to make her his forever . . .
