    A superb late Victorian romance

    In 1885 on her deathbed, his grandmother Lady Valeria pleads with James Burnett to find his ex fiancée Faith McBride to protect her as her life is in danger. He would do anything for his grandma the witch but not that; still he swears he will keep his former fiancée safe even as he wonders who will keep him safe from her. He also knows his grandma¿s last act of life is passing on her clairvoyance skills to him; either that or he is hallucinating.<BR/><BR/>Faith believes her beloved James dumped her to marry someone else. When she sees him, she knows she still loves him even if he is somewhat cold towards her. He offers to help her learn how her mother died. As they follow the clues their love remains strong but their trust remains at zero; love is not enough until she realizes James risks his life for his Faith.<BR/><BR/>This superb late Victorian romance is enhanced by a touch of the paranormal and by the whodunit amateur sleuth investigation. The story line is fast-paced, filled with humor and action, but it is the second chance at love between the wonderful lead pair who makes this a fine historical.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner<BR/>.

    Scotsman James Burnett's dying grandmother, known to the locals as the "Witch of Drumore", sets the wheels of this tale in motion. She has the sight, but doesn't know which of her three grandsons it will be passed on to. Nevertheless,

    she whispers enigmatic warnings to each of them. To widower James she says his must save his bride, who is in danger. A broken betrothal years earlier has left James with unresolved feelings, so he reasons that the bride in question must be his fickle fiancee Faith McBride. In the intervening years he went on to become a railroad baron estranged from his father, stepmother, stepbrother and stepsister. She's now a teacher of the classics at a progressive girls' school who has just discovered her runaway mother's mysterious diary. Someone wants that diary at all costs. James' malaise with his life lifts as he sets out to find Faith, and find her he does as he becomes aware of his psychic powers. A shared nightmare strengthens the bond between James and Faith, as well as the several murders and near misses along the way. The bond between James and his family, as they become involved, is also strengthened. This book is lighter in tone than Ms. Thornton's earlier ones, but this author can always be counted on for a good story.
