This is a really good read! Romantic suspense, with the emphasis on suspense with a touch of the paranormal and a dose of history. Great combination! Moves the book along at a good pace. This is my third book by this author and she handles this genre so very well. If you don't know this author, try her, you'll like her!
It doesn't get any better than Susanna Kearsley. I am always recommending her work. I have read every book. She infuses her work with history, magic, romance, a touch of a ethereal presence, and strong female leads. The young lad in this story is delightful and steady (hint: in a later book, you get to read about him all grown up and very dashing). The characters are well written, the story well developed, with a lovely ending.
