"Excellent storyline, gripping from the start with a variety of characters that are affected by the sudden arrival of Mary into their town. Niall is the hero of the piece but very real and easy to identify with. Legend and myth is weaved into a very exciting story that I honestly couldn't put down...a totally unique and gripping read" (Amazon)
" Set during the heat of summer, it's a brilliant tale of a sleepy village and what happens when a young, beautiful and mysterious woman comes riding in one night - Mary. Straightaway she divides the locals, some of whom become obsessed with her, others who detest her. Who is she, why is she causing such upheaval, what does she want with everyone? An ancient curse woven through the story lends it a satisfying paranormal bent, racing to a breathtaking conclusion. Loved it! Very different, so original. I have read The Soul Room by this author and that too was unique - this is an author to look out for that rises about so much that is bestselling but bland." (Goodreads)
About the Author
Corinna Edwards-Colledge was born in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester, and spent much of her childhood reading fantasy books and exploring the local countryside fueled by Kendal Mint Cake. Unsurprisingly a love of the natural world and a hint of mystery is something that often appears in her novels. Her passion for writing started when she won a poetry competition at the tender age of seven. Since then she has worked as a journalist, written an anthology of poetry, a screenplay and three novels (The Soul Room, Return of the Morrigan and The Call). She studied English and Media at the University of Sussex and has worked in kids playschemes, run volunteering organisations, managed the newsroom for a local TV news programme, and trodden the boards, in a play written by and starring the late Brian Behan. For the last thirteen years she has worked in local government, delivering schemes that encourage people to live more active lives. She lives in Brighton in a loving if sometimes hectic menagerie including her husband, kids, step-kids and pets. As well as writing, she loves cooking very hot curries, going on long walks and sitting in cosy pubs, though not necessarily all in one day!
