by Michael Phillips
Widowed at thirty-four, amateur harpist Marie Buchan realizes that her life and dreams are slowly slipping away. A longed-for summer in Scotland offers far more than a change of scenery. Not only does the music of her harp capture the fancy of the small coastal village she visits, but she is unexpectedly drawn into a love triangle involving the local curate and the local duke.
The boyhood friends are estranged as adults because of their mutual love for a woman (now dead) some years before. History seems destined to repeat itself, with Marie in the thick of it. Her involvement in the lives of the two men, as well as with quirky characters in the community, leads to a range of exciting relationships and lands Marie in the center of the controversy over a mysterious death. Eventually she must decide: What is the truth? And with whom will she cast her lot?
In this sparkling new novel, acclaimed author Michael Phillips takes readers on a romantic journey along Scotland's beautiful shores and into a young widow's search for love, faith, and fulfillment. Only the Giver of dreams can show the way to all she hopes for -- and more.
