Brenna of Gowrys has grown up in hiding-hunted by the O’Byrne clan, who fear her mother’s dying prophecy, and by her own kinsmen, who expect her to lead them against their oppressors. But Brenna is a gifted healer, not a witch or a warrior queen. So she lives alone in the wilderness with only her pet wolf for company. When she rescues a stranger badly wounded from an ambush, she believes he may be the answer to her deep loneliness. Healing him comes as easy as loving him. But can their love overcome years of bitterness and hatred?
I have been highly anticipating Linda Windsor’s Brides of Alba series from the moment I heard Linda was writing another medieval series. I fell in love with Maire, Riona and Deidre, her Fires of Gleanmara trilogy when they first released in 2000 so it was with significant expectations that I began Healer. Weaving Arthurian legend into her story of a reclusive healer confronted with an injured warrior, Linda Windsor displays her great storytelling abilities reinforced with fascinating and extensive research. Healer is a captivating story filled with betrayal, revenge, attraction, swordplay and faith in equal measure. Linda is no slouch in the romance stakes either, the magnetism between Brenna and Ronan is palpable. Prophecy and witchcraft collide in a battle of good and evil as Christianity begins to makes its presence known in the Scottish Isles. The only downside is the interminable wait until I can add Thief and Rebel to my bookshelves!
