Description

The charm of spending the Christmas holidays in South Wales, with its crumbling castles and ancient myths, seems the perfect distraction from the nightmares that have plagued literary agent Lyn Ravenshaw since the loss of her baby five years ago. Instead she meets an emotionally fragile young widow who's convinced that Lyn's recurring dreams have drawn her to Castle Farm for an important purpose - and she's running out of time. With the help of a reclusive, brooding playwright, Lyn begins to untangle the mystery and is pulled into a world of Celtic legends, dangerous prophecies and a child destined for greatness.

About Susanna Kearsley

I had the good fortune to be born into a family of readers. My mother was reading Mary Stewart's This Rough Magic when I was born, so it was perhaps no surprise that Mrs Stewart became my own favourite author.

I can't remember when I began to put words on paper myself, but at seven - after reading Little Women and deciding that I wanted to be just like Jo - I started writing first chapters, and wrote continually through my teenage years. After studying politics and international development at university, I sidestepped into museum work and at the age of twenty-two became a curator.

In that same year, my sister dared me to stop writing first chapters and produce a book. I'd never been able to resist a dare! By the end of that summer I'd finished my first novel, and I was hooked. My `hobby' had become a vocation.

I left the museum to waitress and write. Working mostly late at night, I wrote my second novel, Mariana, and submitted it to Transworld Publishers' Catherine Cookson Fiction Prize competition. Four days before Christmas, I learned that I'd won. The very best of Christmas presents, and one that truly changed my life - not only the GBP10,000 prize, but major international publication of a book that continues to find its own life.
And more than twenty years later, I'm still feeling fortunate, doing the thing I love best...telling stories.
