This review is from: Midsummer Night (Aetherial Tales) (Hardcover)
The title Midsummer night refers to a group of sculptures fashioned by the owner of an art centre. Gill, an Olympic class runner, devastated by an accident and the loss of her fiance, comes to rent a cottage on the estate. By accident, when out walking, she stumbles into another world. There she meets Rufus and his barman called Leith. A few nights later, Leith, in the middle of a storm, stumbles into Gill's cottage begging for shelter. He turns out to be the barman she met. Terrified of Rufus, he doesn't know who he is and seems to know nothing of his past. As the story unravels, it becomes gradually clear who he is and why he so afraid.
This story has many threads, but it is a another masterpiece from the pen of Ms. Warrington. I was initially disappointed not to find the Elfland characters in it. There is a mention of Albin and Laurence Wilder but nothing more than that. The ending is both startling and completely unexpected.
I hated to finish it and am now looking forward to the next one in the series.
