This is another wonderful story from a terrific author. This book follows Ms. Warner’s Dreams for Stones, yet is able to stand on its own. Once I began reading, I could not stop until I had finished. The couple in this tale has so much going against them, but they find themselves drawn to each other. A romance filled with mystery, this is a story of the power of love. I recommend this book to anyone who believes that your fate is written in the stars.
