Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Rendering the fanciful plausible through strong characterization, McKinney ( When Angels Fall ) spins a romance set in Ireland in the middle and late 1800s. According to a Celtic legend, arrogant Lord Niall Trevallyan is destined to marry the woman whose identity is signaled by a magical cross. When the ancient amulet is interpreted, the intended bride seems to be an illegitimate baby, Ravenna. Trevallyan flaunts his scorn for the ancient plan, marrying several times but never finding the love and family he craves. When Ravenna matures, polished but headstrong, he feels stirrings of passion. Obstacles galore arise before the requisite romantic ending, including uprising by locals, pursuit of Ravenna by aristocratic rakes, accidents and a famine caused by the failure to honor the fated betrothal. Trevellyan is a fine if derivative hero, stern and powerful, sometimes even cruel, always amorous. Ravenna conventionally spars with and beds him, but McKinney adds another dimension to her portrayal by giving her literary aspirations: Ravenna writes and publishes a novel, with homage to Mary Wollstonecraft. While this novel is surely not for Wollstonecraft devotees, it is more than competently rendered, distinguished by its colorful setting, gothic sensibility and the interaction between its appealing protagonists. (Apr.)
Library Journal
For hundreds of years, the Lords Trevellyan have ensured the prosperity of County Lir by following the dictates of an Irish curse placed upon their English ancestors when they were given Irish land. In 1828, a magical Celtic cross reveals the identity of his bride to Niall Trevellyn on the eve of his 20th birthday; she is an illegitimate orphan named Ravenna. Proclaiming himself a modern thinker, Trevellyan flaunts the curse and marries another, thus beginning a cycle of misfortune for himself. The emotions between Trevellyan and Ravenna are riveting: he alternates between fascination, contempt, and petulance while she is conflicted by her independence, loneliness, and parentage. The good plot could have fared even better had McKinney spent fewer pages on Ravenna's own writings and more on the action and dialog of secondary characters (rather than narrative) to support the psychological motivations of her main characters. Recommended for public libraries.-- Kimberly Martin, Washington Univ. Law Lib., St. Louis

    One of my favorite books

    This is one of the few novels that I have re-read many times. It's a simply beautiful story that reads almost like a fairy tale for adults. I read a review once that said it was practically a work of art - and they were right. Gothic romance at its absolute best!

    One of the Best Books I Have Ever Read!

    Meagan McKinney outshines herself with this novel. It is historically accurate, has strong characters, and an excellent story line. The the story in this novel is so bittersweet, with the two lovers of the novel constantly at odds. If you want to feel emotion when reading a novel The Ground She Walks Upon would be a good choice. The novel made me cry, but at the end left me feeling content and happy for all lovers that are at odds with each other at any given time.
