What Shadowy Horses is about:
Verity Grey abandons her comfortable job at the British Museum to seek adventure on an archaeological dig in the wilds of Scotland. But when she arrives on site, she discovers that the excavation is being led by a discredited and eccentric old man who has forsaken scientific evidence. Instead, the entire team is following the word of a local boy who claims that he saw a ghostly Roman soldier in the fields.
I will readily admit that Susanna Kearsley has me wrapped around her little finger. She writes something and I will read it. The best part is that what she writes is so incredibly wonderful, that being a Kearsley Fan Girl brings me nothing but joy!! This book was beautiful from beginning to end, the storyline was intricate, and the characters became friends. Visiting her blog before reading one of her books is valuable because she almost always posts pictures from the sites that gave her the inspiration for her stories and she often times gives the reader a glimpse into where some of her ideas gained fruition. Kearsley has delivered yet another fantastic piece of historical fiction and I'm thrilled that I started 2013 with a stellar read!!
Recommend? Without hesitation! Read all of her books if you ever get the chance, you won't regret it!
