"Faithful or Faithless? Time will tell."
James Burnett's grandmother was dying - all three grandsons
knew this but it didn't make it any easier. One of them
would inherit her "talent" - clairvoyance. All she will
tell each of them is one thing about their futures. James'
proclamation is that "Your bride is in mortal danger,
James. You must find her, or she will surely die..." James
is a widower which makes it all the more confusing. She
couldn't mean? She mustn't mean? Faithless McBride? The
woman who ran off with Dobbins' when he went to Edinburgh?
Faith McBride has become a teacher in an elite girls'
school. After James left her for someone he met in
Edinburgh, she has dedicated her life searching for her
mother whom she doesn't remember and who left the family
when Faith was a wee girl. She has posted in the local
paper for anyone knowing something of her mother but hasn't
had many replies. Until she runs into James at the bookshop
where her mail is delivered, that is.
Together they decide to see what became of Madeline
Maynard and why someone wants Faith dead. Is it because of
her mother's diary or is it something Faith herself knows?
Can James solve the mystery and protect his lost love once
This book was a good, quick story. I loved the plot,
unique to the female movement in England and the
clairvoyance between James and Faith was done quite well.
The characters were all well-written (even the bad ones!)
and I recommend it for any mystery fan. Well done!
