Seren has an unusual gift – she sees spirits, the shades of the dead.
Terrified of being accused of witchcraft, a very real possibility in twelfth century Britain, she keeps her secret close, not even confiding in her husband.
But when she gives her heart and soul to a man who guides spirits in the world beyond the living, she risks her secret and her life for their love.
AMAZON / GOODREADS
I came across this book in a free give-away promotion on Twitter. The author offered to email the book for free so I took her up on it.
Unfortunately, The Spirit Guide sat in my inbox for quite a while due to life sorta doing what life does….get in the way of my reading. Downer, right?
Anyhoo, in other, more pleasant news- I enjoyed this book. I liked that the author brought the story full circle at the end (no spoilers.) Author Davies brings the cast to life quite well. I liked the historical details-the politics of the era etc.
If I had one critique, it would be that I feel that the “little details” would have breathed just a bit more life into the story line. By little details, I mean creating the scene with textures, smells, sights and so forth.
Other than that, I look forward to reading more from Elizabeth Davies.
Solid plot line, well rounded characters, lovely historical elements. What’s not to like?
Rather off topic-as someone who reviews books rather routinely, I really appreciated the author including all of her contact info with the book. It is really handy to have all the info lined up for leaving reviews.
Thank you, Ms. Davies. I enjoyed your book and I thank you for sending it to me.
