Summary

My mind is like the willow; it flexes and springs. My heart is a knot of oak. Let them try to wound me. Let them try.

One year after artist Tilda Forwells loses her husband, she is finally ready to move into the secluded Welsh cottage they were meant to be sharing together.

In the valley below her mountain home is a mystical lake which inspires a strange energy in her. She starts to experience potent dreams, visions, presentiments - which all lead her to Seren, the witch and shaman who, legend has it, lived on this lakeshore in Celtic times.

As Tilda explores the lake's powers and her own, her connection to Seren grows stronger. And when she comes under grave threat, she must rely on Seren and this ancient magic to save her.

Gritty & addictive

Another excellent story by Paula Brackstone, this one is a little more gritty & the story keeps you enthralled to the very end

Strange and interesting

I prefer to read rather than listen to books however I do enjoy listening just before sleep. This book was a good listen albeit strange. Very descriptive creating pictures in ones mind. Good story. Very easy on the ears.

Another good book from this author

I love this ladies books. Written so gently and descriptively and she never fails to take you into the story. There is a similarity with this book to the last one I read and another but the story varies enough to create a theme but keep you interested and despite this I always continue to look for the next one.

Unusual, engaging story

I nearly gave up on this as I found the lifeless narration really annoying. However I got drawn into the story and really enjoyed it.

Great!

I enjoyed it, struggled at first then I really got into it. Great storyline and the swapping backwards and forwards was seamless.
