The first Holt novel I ever read. Brought me back to read all the rest of them as they came out. Even searched out earlier works (though there weren't many before this!) If you like romance and intrigue, she's tops in the genre.
Heavy romance books that I enjoyed many years ago while in High School.
According to ancient Black Forest legend, on the Night of the Seventh Moon, Loke, the God of Mischief, is at large in the world. It is a night for festivity and joyful celebration. It is a night for singing and dancing. And it is a night for love.
Helena Trant was enchanted by everything she found in the Black Forest -- especially its legends. But then, on the Night of the Seventh Moon, she started to live one of them, and the enchantment turned suddenly into a terrifying nightmare . . .
I read this book while I was in high school and it was so magical for me. It's been 25 years since I read it and I am considering reading it again. But then, I'm a little hesitant to do that. Fabulous things from my childhood are rarely quite as fabulous when I revisit them as an adult. I wouldn't want to spoil it.
holt was very popular a vew years ago. i read most everything that came out by her. i remember this being one of my favorites. i went back a few years ago and reread it - and that is not always good - sometimes you are shocked at having ever liked a book when you reread it. but this one held up. it was still a good read. light romance with a bit of mystery.
This is a novel of adventure, suspense and romance. It was published in 1972. The character finds herself in a historic castle; where she could find a lifetime of happiness- or an untimely death. Very good book. I am just getting rid of my Victoria Holt mysteries at this time.
