The dream came, just as it always did, just before dawn.
Friday 56:
"With all the talk at dinner tonight, you didn't once ask him about his new book."

"Is that wrong?"

"Well, it's very restrained for you, that's all." Her voice smiled. "I just wondered if maybe you weren't feeling well..."
This week I am spotlighting Named of the Dragon by Susanna Kearsley. I bought both the Kindle and the audiobook for this title. Here is the description from Amazon:
From bestselling author Susanna Kearsley comes a story in which romance and the paranormal combine in a suspenseful Welsh setting to inspire one woman to confront the past and face her own ghosts.

The charm of spending the Christmas holidays in South Wales, with its rich history, crumbling castles and ancient myths, seems the perfect distraction from the nightmares that have plagued literary agent Lyn Ravenshaw since the loss of her baby five years ago.

Instead, she meets an emotionally fragile young widow who's convinced that Lyn's recurring dreams have drawn her to Castle Farm for an important purpose—and she's running out of time.

With the help of a reclusive, brooding playwright, Lyn begins to untangle the mystery and is pulled into a world of Celtic legends, dangerous prophecies, and a child destined for greatness.

Generations of Welsh history haunt Named of the Dragon, but the light that shines through the shadows is sure to draw fans of Diana Gabaldon, Kate Morton and Kate Mosse.
