Every person has an interesting story, and Cas is no exception. Her life unfolds as she allows herself to remember the bad parts, which held her captive. And her discovery of an ancient artifact allows the past to connect with her present.
Relations with her "moody, misunderstood adolescent" son Sam improve, and she feels a reawakening of emotion as her lonely world is peopled by eager archaeologists, one in particular, Niall.
"I toyed with a vague sense of arousal, waking my body and tweaking a frisson of lust..."
Down to earth writing. I relate fully to the description of battling a cold by spending a day in bed, mollycoddling and day-dreaming. Then biting into a secret stash of chocolate.
"I knew I was starting to recover when I began to be able to taste the stuff."
Cas soaks in the bath while dreaming of her favourite beach, Huna cove. "Under the brazen heat of the sun, the distant susurration of the sea was an irresistible lullaby."
Her's is a down-to-earth story, told with sensitivity and insight. I have read it in one sitting, and wholeheartedly recommend it.
The author has dealt with many issues, things that many of us may have been touched by in our lives. It is the tale of the chessman, of course, but it is a story of life and all the things that are thrown at us. Cas has been down but never beaten - a story of success over adversity, hope over despair.
A thoroughly good and worthwhile read.
