I read The Silver Witch by Paula Brackston and enjoyed it. When I saw the charming cover for her latest book, I had to give it a read. It had her signature style and kept me turning pages.
An antique shop haunted by a ghost.
A silver belt chain with an injustice in its story.
An adventure to the past she’ll never forget.
Xanthe has always had an affinity with some of the antiques she finds. When she touches them, she can sense something of the past they come from and the stories they hold. So when she has an intense connection to a beautiful silver antique she has to know more.It’s while she’s examining the chatelaine behind her and her mother Flora’s antique shop that she finds herself transported back to the turbulent days of 1605. Upon her return, a ghost confronts Xanthe, tasking her with changing the past to save an innocent girl’s life, or else it’ll cost her Flora’s.
While Xanthe fights to save the girl, she meets an architect who may be the key to fulfilling her promise. He may also be the reason she can’t bring herself to leave.
The Reading Room is where I share books, because authors are readers, too! I don't review books on my blog, but I do like to share books I've read and enjoyed. I call it "sharing the book love." My tastes are eclectic, so expect to see everything from sweet, wholesome romance to edge-of-your-seat, sexy thrillers.
