This story of a mute (by choice) woman, Morgana, who has powers she doesn't understand, who marries a widowed drover, Cai Jenkins, and finds space for herself in the relationship, but very little space in the village he lives in.

Morgana does not speak, not since her father disappeared when she was a young child. This isn’t what makes people in her small Welsh village look askance at her.

This book is absolutely wonderful. From the moment I picked it up, I could not put it down. The author’s meticulous attention to detail transports you back to 19th century Wales, painting a beautiful, breathtaking picture. She introduces you to Morgana, a mute witch who conveys far more through e...

I enjoyed this book, I really did but the narration style while necessary because one of the characters does not speak and part of the book is from her point of view can be tiring at times. The plot is very good I liked all the characters but I did crave more dialog. Paula is an excellent story te...
