Mary Grey had come from Canada to the land of her forebears: Northumberland. As she savored the ordered, spare beauty of England’s northern fells, the silence was shattered by the shout of a single name: “Annabel!” And there stood one of the angriest, most threatening young men Mary had ever seen. His name was Connor Winslow, and Mary quickly discovered that he thought she was his cousin—a girl supposedly dead these past eight years. Alive, she would be heiress to an inheritance Connor was determined to have for himself. This remarkably atmospheric novel is one of bestselling-author Mary Stewart’s richest, most tantalizing, and most surprising efforts, proving her a rare master of the genre.

4.0 The Ivy Tree by Mary Stewart
Finished! Well, I'll be hornswoggled. This book was really rather fabulous, actually. The beginning is a bit slow, but the plot twists come fast and furious in the last half. It's set in Northumbria, near Newcastle, which makes a nice change from Cornwall, and the Roman ruins figure in th...

3.0 The Ivy Tree
3.5 stars. Another good mystery/romantic suspense story by Mary Stewart; The Ivy Tree wasn't my favorite, but was still good. The secret about Mary was an interesting twist, but I'm not sure how plausible the whole premise was. Sometimes I feel like Stewart's books verge on insta-love, but not this ...

This novel had me guessing the entire time! The best part was there were no hokey tricks, last minute third parties. But lots of irony. I very much enjoyed the suspense. Thanks, Jeanette for recommending it!
