"I've loved every one of Susanna's books! She has bedrock research and a butterfly's delicate touch with characters—sure recipe for historical fiction that sucks you in and won't let go!"— DIANA GABALDON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Outlander


The charm of spending the Christmas holidays in South Wales, with its crumbling castles and ancient myths, seems the perfect distraction from the nightmares that have plagued literary agent Lyn Ravenshaw since the loss of her baby five years ago.

Instead, she meets an emotionally fragile young widow who's convinced that Lyn's recurring dreams have drawn her to Castle Farm for an important purpose—and she's running out of time.

With the help of a reclusive, brooding playwright, Lyn begins to untangle the mystery and is pulled into a world of Celtic legends, dangerous prophecies, and a child destined for greatness.

Don't miss the next enchanting novel from Susanna Kearsley, Bellewether, coming August 2018!

At the urging of a friend, Lyn joins an intimate group for the Christmas holidays at an old estate in Wales. Hoping to distract herself from ghosts from her own past, Lyn explores the grounds and meets the locals, including a mysterious, antisocial playwright a few doors down. As the holidays climax, so too does a local, tragic mystery.

This isn't Kearsley's best, but it's worth a summer/beach read. Check out *The Winter Sea and *The Rose Garden for her most riveting stories.

I think I'm a fan! The writing is not fancy in any way, yet it is perfect, it does not distract you from the story. The story is also just enough and no more, yet it's perfect too, it's everything I want in a good book. I would recommend this to any bookworm who just loves the escapism of reading.
