Who killed Alfred de Maine, Lord Farnton? Highwaymen on the backroads of Ireland, as his pretty widow Eleanor claims? One of the traveling folk camped near the village where Eleanor fled? A resident of Glenscar, protecting the village's hidden power? Or did John Marlowe, the son of Glenscar's squire, kill the lord to win the lady?
Eleanor knows the truth, but she also knows the value of a secret. Her greatest desire, to marry John as soon as her six months of mourning are over, remains obtainable only so long as it is unknown. Along the way, she must master her magic of moving, using heart and head to decide which stories to believe.
Will love and patience win the day, and Eleanor join hands with John at last? Or is she doomed to live and die a Widow in Waiting?
Welcome to a world where magic lives in the quiet moments of the everyday, and where rich and poor, settled and wanderers, might have more in common than they dream. Welcome to the Chronicles of Glenscar.

Being a fan of Anne's from the Dangerverse (HP Fanfiction), I absolutely had to buy this. It's totally not from the genres I tend to read, but I absolutely loved it and thought the little world she made was amazing. I can't wait for the next installment in the World of Glenscar!
I received this as a review copy from Library Thing, and it was a pleasure. This was a good read. I really enjoyed it. I leaned so much about Irish legend and the culture that the author created. The characters of Eleanor (Noreen) and John (Sean) are so believable. It almost makes me believe in magic! I thought the author did a great research job and her characters are well developed and the narrative flowed so easily. Impressive work.
