The Girl on the Cliff
Girl running from disaster meets girl standing on the edge of a cliff. A match made in heaven! Their families have been linked one way or the other for centuries and all it take is one look at Aurora Lisle for Grania Ryan to decide she’s met the child she was meant to have.
The coast of Ireland has many tales and this is one of the better ones. Families intertwined. Centuries of history to discover and a young man back in New York whose soul mate has left him to return home to Ireland.
The characters in this book are so well written that you could be sitting in the drawing room watching it all happen. Aurora’s father could well be a vampire or a ghost and her dead mother calls to her at night. The fact that Aurora watched her mother jump from the cliff may have something to do with that!
The plot evolves in ways I could not have imagined and this novel from the author of The Orchid House does nothing wrong. As a suspense novel it’s great and, as a love story – greater.
