That Autumn in Edinburgh
Dateline: 250 years later…a stand-alone, contemporary sequel to Ware's historical novel Island of the Swans
Can memories of a tragic, eighteenth century love triangle be passed down through a descendant’s DNA?
A compelling, almost mystical attraction draws American designer Fiona Fraser into the force field of visiting Scotsman, Alexander Maxwell, through an eerie happenstance one steamy summer’s day in New York City.
