TAPING DONE..THANK YOU AMAZON FOR HAVING THE BOOK AVAILABLE FOR ME...LORA
The story concerns Yasmin Taverton and her experiences in an insular, snobbish English Village. Her reserved father is the new village schoolmaster. Village Society is led by the wealthy, aristocratic Liscombe family.
Yasmin meets the ne'er-do-well, rakish Edward, Lord Liscombe at the Liscombe House New Year's Eve Party. Edward is fascinated by Yasmin, but mistrusts her transparent honesty.
Yasmin has a weak heart and has always had to observe life while others around her enjoyed life without limitations. Edward is the first man to treat her as a woman and not a fragile child.
Yasmin has a special ability, all her life she has experienced flashes of intuition, clairvoyant glimpses into the lives of the people around her. She sees that there is more to Edward than the various sordid tales of his misadventures. For some reason he encourages the false gossip.
Edward is living a double life. The discovery of his true character and motivations makes this a really interesting and involved novel of suspense/romance.
The story includes the three dimensional characters of the two concerned families of the protaganists. It is realistic in the harmful situations that arise out of a family's desire to "protect" a loved one.
This is a great story, the protaganists are individuals with flaws, the suspense plot is tense, the romance is honest and realistic and the dialogue is revealing of character. Flawless.
I guess that is why this is so special, because I don't read it very often.
