Had fate and nature not conspired, Alyce Redgrave would have been a child of wealth and privilege. But the night of her birth was shadowed by an eerie Devils Moon and her christening day marred by a fierce hailstorm—ill omens that led the superstitious peasants to seek Alyce's life. Desperate to save her infant daughter, Alyce's mother flees with her baby, finding shelter and goodwill at the isolated farm of strangers . . .
There, Alyce's life is filled with secrets, unanswered questions, and a sense of foreboding. Her worst fears are realized when she narrowly escapes the clutches of a murderer by fleeing into the forest. Fate steps in once more to change the course of her life when Alyce is found and taken in by Elspeth, a wise woman with the uncanny ability to commune with nature. Trained by Elspeth in the art of healing, Alyce remains haunted by the puzzle of her past until she discovers her mother's lost pendant. With the help of this object and the aid of the enchanting William Pascoe, Alyce finally holds the key to who she once was and who she will become.
Well, I totally stayed up until two in the morning to finish this one. This is one of those books that just snuck up on me. It looked and sounded good, but you guys, it is phenomenal! There are so many stories within this story and so many layers to unfold and figure out. The entire mystery kept me reading and page turning until I read the very last word. From the beginning of Alyce's journey until the very end, I was pulled in hook, line, and sinker. Alyce's journey is so unique, I have never read anything like it. Warburton has created a unique historical tale that will take you on an emotional and unpredictable trip beyond your imagination. You will walk away with a new understanding of family and perseverance, terms Alyce truly redefined. For fans of historical romance, this is the book you do not want to miss!
