ATMOSPHERIC AND EERIE...,
This review is from: Shadowy Horses (Paperback)
Beautifully written, the book immediately grips the reader in its
thrall. The plot is well developed, as are the main characters. There are also enought twists and turns to satisfy most. If you enjoyed Susanna Kearsley's previous novel, "Mariana", you will also enjoy this one.
The plot revolves around an archaeological site in Scotland where our heroine, archaeologist Verity Grey, is working. Toss in a former lover, an eight year old blessed with second sight, a masterful, very attractive Scotsman, a family secret, some Scottish mists, and a ghostly sentinel from the Ninth Roman Legion, and you have a recipe for a gothic style page turner, if ever there were one.
