Publisher's Summary

Whistling Tor is a place of secrets: a mysterious, wooded hill housing the crumbling fortress belonging to Anluan - a chieftain whose name is spoken throughout the region in tones of revulsion and bitterness. A curse lies over Anluan's family and his people, and the woods themselves hold a perilous force whose every whisper threatens doom.

Then the young scribe Caitrin appears in Anluan's garden, admiring the rare plant known as heart's blood. Retained to sort through entangled family documents, Caitrin brings about unexpected changes in the household, casting a hopeful light against the despairing shadows.

But even as Caitrin brings solace to Anluan, and the promise of something more between them, he remains in thrall to the darkness surrounding Whistling Tor. To free Anluan's burdened soul, Caitrin must unravel the web of sorcery woven by his ancestors before it claims his life - and their love....

I keep coming back to this book

I own a paperback copy that I've read multiple times, but i quite enjoyed listening to the audiobook. This book is such an interesting take on Beauty and the Beast, I adore it.

Loved it. Glad I gave it a chance.

Juliet Marillier was one of the first authors I read as a child more than 25 years ago and she is still one of my favorites.
