Exceeded reading goal for 2015
This was a solid, good book and reminded me of the books I used to read when I was younger (historical romances). Granted, it was far better written than most of what I used to read.
I can see a familiar pattern after reading a few books, however, Kearsley delivers a satisfying read that gives you a hint of romance with historical details. I like how a bit of earth magic is woven in to weave together the past and the present. It seems to match my overall impression that life is not always what it seems to be and that there can be unexplained connections between people.
I want to travel to Scotland and Ireland again. It may take a long time, but it is a place I would like to return to. I enjoy reading books about the ancient spaces of both countries, and including England. I do feel a connection to coastal areas, including our own. I think the one thing I could say about Kearsley's books is that sometimes the historical storyline dominates the overall stories, and I would almost like more of the modern thread than what is given. Both stories pull me along and one seems to get less attention than the other.
