Eighteen-year-old Rebecca Lennox, the daughter of a former priest, is neglected and feared by the villagers of Dunmow in Essex. They regard her as cursed, by both her hare lip and her gift of second sight. Rebecca finds solace in the statue of St Michael the Archangel, to whom she prays devotedly within the sanctity of her old parish church. But when a young Catholic priest arrives in the village it seems that she has finally found a mortal confidant. Michael is not repelled by her infirmity and his charm and gentleness remind her of her beloved statue.
Eines der wenigen Solo-Bücher, nicht Teil einer Serie. “The main characters in this novel have real depth – I loathed the despicable warlock! The story is fast-paced and never boring. Each scene is described in just enough detail to allow the imagination to fill in the blanks, which I personally enjoy.” (Rezensentin) (15 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 420 Seiten noch günstig?
