The Velvet Cloak of Moonlight
“As the velvet cloak of moonlight settled over the ruined towers of Raglan Castle, the shadows beneath them stirred …”
When newly widowed Tess visits Raglan Castle, an extraordinary hallucination transports her to a past that existed long before her own – to seventeenth-century Wales and to a castle on the brink of a siege.
Even when Tess leaves Raglan to return to Merrick Court, her husband’s home, the strangeness continues as her life becomes increasingly intertwined with her dreams and visions. And when the new owner of the estate arrives – New Zealander Josh Owens – the parallels become even more obvious. It’s time to confront the past head-on.
But perhaps the voices from the past aren’t just trying to tell their own story, maybe they’re also giving a warning …
