Christina Courtenay

The first novel which I read by Christina Courtenay was The Scarlet Kimono set in 1611. In Japan, HannahMarston is abducted by Kumashiro, who has been warned about her by a seer. I enjoyed it so much that in future I shall read it again.

Yesterday, with a satisfied sigh, I finished reading Christina's novel The Silent Touch of Shadows in which dreams and visions concerning a mediaeval knight and a young woman plague genealogist Melissa Grantham. Jake Precy, a vet, also dreams about the past.  Neither Melissa nor Jake can decide whether they are in love or whether ghosts are manipulating them.

Now, I am looking forward to reading Chistina's new novel The Gilded Fan.
