Format: Hardcover
I've owned this book since 1974 and continue to read it every few years. What an imagination! The author skillfully and intelligently combines a resourceful young American actress with the Cliffs of Moher, archaeology and the ancient Irish legends, a few classic literary references, a network of violence, old-fashioned romance with a down-to-earth hero, a pair of hardworking well-educated Irish dreamers and one truly great Irish wolfhound.
From the back cover- "She came to a land of fearful legends and terrifying reality. Young American actress Grania Kirk was in flight from a disasterous love affair when she came to the homeland of her Irish ancestors - and to the legendary Cliffs of Moher, where ancient evil was said to live eternally between the howling winds above and the crashing seas below.
It was in this wild and desolate place that a chance meeting with a handsome stranger, and a thoughtless surrender to an irresistably romantic impulse, suddenly plunged Grania into a nightmare of danger in a strife-torn land of violence and intrigue, where life was cheap and love could be a deadly lie..."
This is absolutely in the great tradition of Mary Stewart! Find it if you can.

I read this book for the first time when my son was 2; he is now 32. I couldn't find this book for sale anywhere so I debated just 'not returning' or 'losing it' from the local library. After a 7 month deliberation I did return it and just kept borrowing it constantly (from other libraries LOL). I bought it used at an exorbitant price a couple of years ago! The Cliffs of Night is the most enjoyable peek into Ireland, her legends, and the characters are larger than life. How Ms. Brandon did it I wish I knew. I just know that it rained today, it's AZ, and I pulled out The Cliffs of Night and read it. I just 'get it' more every time I read it - and I love to read two or three books a day whenever I am ill. You know, I don't even mind anymore so much when I'm down with lupus if I can grab a book like The Cliffs of Night - and yes, I do love Mary Stewart.

I cannot tell you how excited I was to find one of my favorite mysteries. When I originally bought a copy of the book, I read it again and again until the cover fell off. I am one who doesn't tire of a good story with a great plot. I find there is always something new discovered in each reading or an image that is just so delightful that it can be savored numerous times. Now, so many years later, I find the story as intriquing as I did originally. I love mysteries and folk lore - this book is a great combination of both. I'm so glad to find it again. The ending - ahh it is grand!

It is well worth reading, it's one of the best. It is romantic and Irish and a great adventure. You will fall in love with Ireland and it's history. I don't want to spoil any of the plot. If you like Mary Stewart you will love this book.

Have read this book for over 30 + years. Had a paperback that was falling apart. This book is in great shape. The book jacket was just slightly worn, but it was the book I was interested in. Set in 1960s or 70s, with a gothic thriller, romance theme, but semi-modern day, you'll love this book. Can't find many books by Beatrice Brandon, but there is at least one, The Court of Silver Shadows. I'm looking forward to a comfy chair and good books.
