In the time of King Arthur, a young female healer rescues a wounded stranger and grows to love him... but with their love bring pain or peace to their strife-torn Alba? Brenna of Gowrys has grown up in hiding -- hunted by the O'Byrne clan, who fear her mother's dying prophecy, and by her own kinsmen, who expect her to lead them against their oppressors. But Brenna is a gifted healer, not a witch or a warrior queen. So she lives alone in the wilderness with her only pet wolf for company.
When she rescues a stranger badly wounded from an ambush, she believes he many be the answer to her deep loneliness. Healing him comes as easy as loving him. But can their love overcome years of bitterness and hatred?
Wow! This book was amazing. It was the best Linda Windsor book I've read. It was so thoroughly researched and detailed that I felt like I was in Arthurian times myself. The characters were amazing. The plot was amazing. It was just amazing!
That being said, however... There were some scenes that may be a bit racy for extremely conservative readers. Nothing explicit but some might be a bit uncomfortable reading those scenes.
And, some scenes were just plain SCARY!! Creeped me out. I probably shouldn't have read those scenes right before going to bed.
This is a great book for those who can look past a little inuendo and those who can read while hiding behind a pillow.
Book 2 of the series, Thief, comes out next summer.
