Booklist Review

This World War I^-era historical romance centers on Primmy Tremayne's high-spirited daughter Skye, a young American journalist who has developed strong ties to her Cornish heritage. Intrigued by both her own history and the family's business, the China clay works which serve as the base of the local economy, Skye decides to take a year's sabbatical to visit England. But her plans for a pleasant year of connecting with her roots and writing local color pieces for publication in America are soon disrupted. Although the large cast of characters is hard to keep track of, close-up accounts of World War I military action, the family's twisted past, Skye's romance, and a healthy dose of Gaelic mysticism and Cornish dialogue work together to create an interesting and enjoyable tale, the fifth in the author's Clay series. --Catherine Sias
