This is the 2nd best series I've ever read!! (First being Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series). These books MUST be read in the correct order: Beyond, To Tame, The Touch, Kiss, Dark and the Immortal. Spell is yet to come out in paperback. Enjoy!!!!
I too struggled with this Kate Morton book. I adored all her other books, so I automatically got this one. It seems to me that the story was told by too many characters, who seemingly aren't connected, till near the end of the book; I got lost several times. I will re-read it again, knowing now what I know!
This is an excellant series; second only to Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. This is book two of four in the series; #5 comes out "mid 2006 - tentatively titled Queen of Swords" - that is from her web site. Elizabeth and Nathaniel will remain in your hearts.
This is a strange little book. As it ended, I double checked to make sure I was at the end of the pages; I felt sure there was more to come. I enjoyed it, just would've enjoyed it more if there was more to the story. It was a very easy read.
