ABOUT THE BOOK



Widowed at 34, amateur harpist Marie "Angel" Buchan realizes at 40 that her life and dreams are slowly slipping away. A summer in Scotland turns out to offer far more than she ever imagined! Not only does the music of her harp capture the fancy of the small coastal village she visits, she is unexpectedly drawn into a love triangle involving the local curate and the local duke.



The boyhood friends have been estranged as adults because of their mutual love of another woman (now dead) some years before. History seems destined to repeat itself, with Marie in the thick of it. Her involvement in the lives of the two men, as well as in the community, leads to a range of exciting relationships and lands Marie in the center of the mystery of a long-unsolved local murder. Eventually she must make her decision: with whom will she cast the lot of her future?

My Thoughts:
I'm only a few chapters in, but Marie's character is already richly ingrained in my mind. What a beautifully descriptive story! You can feel the ocean spray and hear the harp music as you read! Eagerly awaiting the finish of this story!

Sounds interesting. It's been years since I read any Michael Phillips, but I loved Legend of the Celtic Stone and An Ancient Strife, also set in Scotland. :)
