Paranormal romance is not a genre I've read much of, so I wasn't sure what to expect. How do you have a relationship with a ghost, and how do you manage to resolve the issue, and make a satisfying ending? Thankfully, Linda has managed to answer all of these questions, and make a love story which works.
Linda usually manages to offer a rather adorable hero, and in The Glass Guardian, she brings two potentials - one is Tom, who's rather complex, and not quite what you expect, and then the aforementioned ghost. Ruth herself is also worth a mention, dealing with grief, and a lot of changes in her life. She somehow manages to be both fragile and strong at the same time.
Once again this is where the strength of Linda's book lies, in the people. She paints characters who are realistic and flawed, and completely believable. You can have a strong storyline, but it doesn't quite work as well if you don't find yourself caring about the characters. Ruth became important to me, and I wanted things to work out for her.
With the stunning setting of a snowy Skye, The Glass Guardian brings music, grief, hope, love, and a ghost - what else could you need?!
Overall I would say give this book a try, it is a lovely read and you will thoroughly enjoy it. :)
An imaginative storyline but surrounded by reality with similarities to Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger, although I enjoyed The Glass Guardian more. It was possibly an unusual choice to read on a hot summer afternoon but on the other hand how cooling it was to be transported to the wintry scenes of Skye and the fantastic cover really worked well for me, making Tigh-na-Linne the house where the story unfolds come to life in my imagination. The paranormal genre is a new departure for the author although if you have read her earlier novels you will know it is a subject she has touched on before with characters that play ghost like roles. However her characters are portrayed they are always very believable and realistic with women that are normal as the heroines and some gorgeous sounding heroes, the ones in The Glass Guardian are no exception. Once again she has written an enthralling story about friendship, family, love and music recurring themes in her novels.
To say too much about the storyline here would be entirely wrong as the reader needs to discover how everything connects for themselves in this very sensitive and emotional love story.Read more ›

The few negative reviews say it all 'The Glass guardian' is a daft story but funnily enough it didn't annoy me too much, at least at the start, and that is probably because it... Read morePublished 1 month ago by H. Lacroix
Once again an exellent book from Ms Gillard. The only thing which bugged me at the end was "What happened to the other two windows?". Make great follow up stories.Published 5 months ago by Jude Faulkner
The story is lovely and very descriptive, the only real down for me is the sex between Hector and Ruth. Would you have sex with a ghost who is a relative of your?Published 7 months ago by CA Allen
