Christy Nicholasabout this book: Turlough's beloved wife has died in childbirth, and he is distraught. Deciding that their children will be better off with his sister, he leaves them in the middle of the night. His eldest son, Ruari, however, tags along despite his protests.
On a stormy night, they seek whatever shelter they can find. The shelter winds up a dangerous doorway to another world. They end up in a strange land, and might not escape with their lives, or their souls.
This is a short story that takes place about ten years before the events in Legacy of Luck. While it isn't necessary to read the other books in the series, I hope this story will enhance the characters.
"Time. He needed more time. And that was the one thing he couldn't control.
Turlough held his wife's hand. She was so incredibly thin. He didn't want to squeeze for fear of breaking her bones. This would be their fifth child. He prayed that Maeve would live long enough to hold the child in her arms.
She moaned again, and he glanced at the midwife. The woman shook her head and closed her eyes. The tears pummeled at his eyes as he closed his own."
