A beautiful historical romance from the author of The Curiosity Cabinet

When antiques seller Daisy Graham inherits an ancient house on the Hebridean island of Garve, she's daunted by its size and isolation. But the building, its jumble of contents, its wilderness of a garden and the island itself prove themselves so fascinating that she's soon captivated. She's also attracted to Cal Galbraith, who is showing an evident interest in the house and its new owner, yet she's suspicious of his motives – with good reason, it seems.

In parallel with their story runs that of sixteenth-century cousins Mateo and Francisco, survivors from the ill-fated Spanish Armada who find safe passage to the island.There, one of them falls in love with the laird's daughter. The precious gold posy (poesy) ring he gives her is found centuries later. Are its haunting engraved mottoes, un temps viendra and vous et nul autre, somehow significant now for Daisy and Cal?

"Excellent … a beautifully crafted novel that immerses the reader in the lives and loves of people whose stories are played out in the same place, but over four centuries apart … Catherine Czerkawska deftly weaves the strands of her novel, painting a rich pen picture." Undiscovered Scotland

"A lyricism which conjures up vivid pictures of landscape and a sparse, readable style which drives the plot along." The Scotsman

“Skilful and, at times, poetic writing… The author cleverly intertwines the historical and modern-day stories. The characters in both the past and present are finely drawn and believable… I was entranced.” Penny Ingham, Historical Novels Review
