Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Horrendous narration"

    I wish I could have listened to this book as I'm sure it is fantastic as all her books are .
    The narration was excruciating. The worse kind of theatrical luvvie voice , Received Pronunciation at its most exaggerated . Every character had the same voice , male and female , it was hard to work out which person was speaking in a convo.... I gave up after two chapters and returned the book.
    I would love to listen to this book again, definitely not with this narrator.

    "Enjoyable"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a very descriptive story that moved slowly. I think I'm spoiled by fast paced novels these days and so I found myself bored in a few places and wanting to speed read through some scenes. Unfortunately, its hard to do that n an audio, so I had to patently wait until the action picked up a bit. A satisfying ending though.

    "Not as strong linking the magic with reality."

    I enjoyed it and will read again but it wasn't as strong as her other novels. Narration was very good.
