THE LINNET

Author(s): 

Lady Maude Darnley's nightmares of a vicious attack traumatize her, and she cries out for the healer Fergus to return to her side. On his deathbed, the healer sends his apprentice, Ronan Fitzgerald. With harp in hand, Ronan follows his master's wishes and works to gain Maude's trust through his music.

As Ronan and Maude fall deeply in love, he's able to banish her nightmares that have haunted her. Now they must find a way to bring centuries of feuding between Maude's family and another clan to an end. If successful they just might make a place for themselves in a complicated world.

An emotional, riveting installment to the Highland Fling series, The Linnet carefully and compassionately explores the healing powers of patience, music and love. Though the complexity of the plot slows the pace, English brings her special love for Scotland to her story, sweeping readers right into the pages. SENSUAL (Jan., 400 pp., $6.99)
