Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
King (The Raven Moon) offers everything a historical romance should have: strong sense of time and place, masterful plotting, compelling love storyand more. The "more" is the extraordinary Lady Michaelmas, a licensed physician and healer with miraculous hands, in Robert the Bruce's 14th-century Scotland. Warrior laird Diarmid Campbell is heroic in body and soul, a perfect foil for Michaelmas, the woman he can't have as long as his divorced wife lives. Their initial meeting in a battle's aftermath is mythically lovely, as are descriptions of Michaelmas as she heals a wounded warrior, a woman in childbirth, a crippled child, even a baby seal. Scottish-set medievals can be just dreadful, but King's brilliant storytelling and painstaking historical research elevates this tale of love caught between the complex politics of church and state.

Diarmid and Michael. In this case, Michael is a girl's name. They first met in the aftermath of a battle, tending to the wounded. aEach was awed by the other's gift, but they passed like ships in the night. Years later, they are reunited when Diarmid is looking for a miracle for his lame niece. Diarmid tracks down Michael to ask her for help. Though she makes no promises about miracles, she accompanies him to his home. In the intervening years, each has married. Michael to a doctor in Italy while she studied medicine herself. The doctor has left her widowed, so she returned home to Scotland. Diarmid is separated from his wife, but forced by the church to remain married to her. As they get reacquainted, they feel the growing love between them, but they know they can never be together. Michael is trying to regain her property in Scotland, but as an unmarried women, she is not allowed to take possession of it. It is in the hands of MacSween, a man who's loyalty to the King is questioned. Susan King tells a fine tale of love and intrigue. It is well written with a good plot and plenty of sub-stories to keep the reader entranced. Lady Miracle is a lovely historical romance with a touch of magic. Though it takes place after the events of the novel The Angel Knight, it is a completely stand alone novel. However, if you like Lady Miracle, you will also like The Angel Knight - and vice versa. I recommend them both!
