The fight for Edgeway is over. But, for many, the greatest battle has only just begun...
Anselm is gravely wounded. Perhaps mortally so.
Lost within his fevered dreams, he journeys back to the long-ago summers of his youth, to a time when the bonds of family and friendship had still been unbroken.
Through the eyes of the boy he had been, and those of the man he was to become, Anselm sees the world that might have been—relives a love that should have been—if only the spirits had been kinder.
Isobel. The girl who had stolen his heart and, ultimately, sealed his fate.
As his body lies broken within his bedchamber in Edgeway castle, Anselm's spirit soars free, wandering the lonely, narrow pathway that separates the realm of life from death.
A life that no longer wants him, or the love that never died?
Which will be the strongest lure?

A touching revelation of how & why anselm became the man feared & despised by many, including his own family. Often dark yet beautiful, the author writes in a poetic verse style when anselm, delirious & near death remembers his past of love found & love lost, & his father's rejection. Beautiful cover that reflects the heart of anselm's story. But, of course there's always martha, who proves herself a true friend that can sort of make him smile in the midst of all this. In the 21st century, what becomes his family, would be considered dysfunctional, but loving in their own strange way.
Story is unfinished. Its as if the writer suddenly remembered she had something else to do and just walked away from the story. The End
Thank you for this amazing great story. I will miss these people. I 'm hoping to see a third book. I'd love to see sweet Anselm find true love too. Poor young man went through hell. Vadim sounds like a sweet gentle man as well. Martha reminds me of my grandmother, lol. Fiesty gal that one. I ' m impressed by her care in not saying too much about her history yet giving the careful help with the ptsd suffered by Vadim. Now I'm gonna get a tissue. Lol gone though half a box hard reading about sweet Isobel, so very sad. Thanks again. Michele Carroll Keep writing!
