Oriana has returned to her childhood home, carrying with her the pain of the past. In a way she seems locked in a world that she was forced from as a child. Her fretful faulty self reflects the nature of being forced to grow up too fast, resulting in time 'at home' appearing to have stood still. Even though time has marched on at windward - in so many ways, nothing has changed. And the same seems true of Oriana.
Her relationships with brothers Jed and Malarchy appear forever entwined in memories and moments of intense emotion. They are thrust backwards, forced to face feelings that lie in the shadows of Windeard, and unravel the past before it strangles them all.
There is so much detail in the family dynamics at Windward , with a complex smorgasbord of delightful and despicable characters. But it is Freya North's innate and intuative understanding of relationships that weave them together and ensures that even when someone feels alone, there is always somewhere to go, even if the route is circuitous!
A well written beautiful story from Freya North.
