"Enthralling time travel romance"
In 1997, the trail Fiona Chanceller has followed in
search of her missing cousin Faith Worthington takes her to
County Tyrone in Northern Ireland. The experts told her
that the dagger she holds that Faith once possessed comes
from that region. She quickly learns from an antique shop
owner, Seamus Gogarty that the O'Bruiader dagger is indeed
from the area. He also informs her that the dagger, which
has not been seen in centuries at least in this vicinity,
has a legend involving Fey people, and an enchantment
allegedly activated by mystic stone circles like that of
Fiona's search takes a twist when she soon finds
herself in mid-seventeenth century Ireland where she learns
that Faith is happy with her soul mate, who is a prisoner
of the Roundheads. As Fiona tries to help free Miles
O'Bruiader, she falls in love with his best friend Ian
Maclaren, but can she give up the conveniences of late
twentieth century life as her cousin has?
ACROSS A MOONSWEPT MOOR is an exciting time travel
romance. The engaging story line works because the heroine
struggles with her adjustment to a less technological area
and clearly misses the conveniences she is used to having.
The return of Faith and Miles (stars of A DOUBLE EDGED
BLADE) augments this story as their fate impacts on that of
Fiona and Ian. This cleverly crafted tale that uses
historical tidbits to describe the setting belongs to the
lead couple, especially the 'cake and eat it' heroine who
wants her hunk and her twentieth century devices too.
