THE INVINCIBLE NINTH ROMAN LEGION MARCHES FROM YORK TO FIGHT THE NORTHERN TRIBES. AND THEN VANISHES FROM THE PAGES OF HISTORY.
Verity Grey has been drawn to the dark legends of the Scottish
Borderlands in search of the truth buried in a rocky field by the sea.
eccentric boss has spent his whole life searching for the resting place
of the lost Ninth Roman Legion and is convinced he's finally found
it—not because of any scientific evidence, but because a local boy has
"seen" a Roman soldier walking in the fields, a ghostly sentinel who
guards the bodies of his long-dead comrades.
Here on the
windswept shores, Verity may find the answer to one of the great
unsolved mysteries of our time. Or she may uncover secrets someone
buried for a reason.
Since reading The Rose
Garden, Susanna Kearsley has become a favorite author of mine. I had
the privilege of taking a seminar with her once about how to research
HF. She talked about how she goes to the places she is writing about
and gets a feel for the area. What a wonderful experience that would
be. She definitely got a feel for this book.
She did a great
job bringing out the details of the land. Added some supernatural
elements to draw the reader in, with some mystery and romance to boot.
A very entertaining story.
