Brackston (The Witch's Daughter, 2011) transports readers to the windswept mountains of 19th-century Wales in this enthralling tale of love and magic. In her small Welsh town, there is no one quite like Morgana Pritchard, mute since childhood, who has strong magical powers. Her mother, concerned for her daughter's safety, marries her off to widower Cai Jenkins. As Morgana helps Cai work his farm, she finds herself slowly falling in love with this enigmatic but gentle man. But there is a dark force at work in her new village, one that threatens everything she holds dear. Enchanting.
