Kurzbeschreibung

If you enjoy the extraordinary stories of Diana Gabaldon, Karen Marie Moning, and the paranormal works of Nora Roberts...

THE STARRY CHILD is a spell-binding, unforgettable story of a star-crossed love that survives through the ages, a tale as timeless as the mystic Scottish legends and forbidden lovers among the heather of long ago. Yet it is as vibrant and alive in the present day as those whose fates now hang in the balance. It's the story of a young mother who learns that her own destiny is forever tied to a man she hardly knows, a man of the Highlands. Yet in her heart, she realizes that he's someone she has always known. And at the center of it all lies an undying love held in secret by a little girl.

Since the tragic death of her father, eight-year-old Sasha Nielson has not spoken a word. Her mother, Rainey, has taken her to doctors and therapists, but medical science has not found the cause or the cure for Sasha’s silence. There are days when her behavior is baffling, even potentially dangerous, particularly during lightning storms. The authorities threaten to take Sasha away and time is running out.

One man sees beyond Sasha’s mysteries. Matt Macinnes is a gifted professor of ancient languages, a man who senses that there is a key to Sasha’s silence, that she may in fact be guarding a secret of such profound and terrifying dimensions that it staggers the imagination. Only Matt can get Sasha to whisper her secrets, secrets she reveals to him in Old Gaelic, a language she has never had access to. Could this All-American little girl truly be carrying around the restless soul of an exiled Celtic queen of old?

More than that, Matt finds himself drawn to Rainey's amazing strength and beauty. He feels ties to her that he can't explain. But her protective instincts toward little Sasha have built a fortress around her heart, a barrier that only hard-won trust and absolute proof of his worthiness can tear down. He is devoted to both mother and daughter, but the mystery of Sasha's secret destiny must be solved before he can reveal the passionate truth that burns within him.

Rainey has fought to keep Sasha safe from the cruelty and ignorance of the world. She has tried everything to help Sasha overcome her silence, but in the end, Sasha's wordlessness has prevailed and stress and exhaustion are Rainey's constant companions. She can't fix things by herself, but she doesn't dare trust anyone else for fear others have a dark agenda that could lead to the loss of Sasha. Matt is very tempting. Aside from the fact that he has an almost mystical kind of attraction about him, it would be very easy to simply hand him her heart and her impossible responsibilities and let him take over for a while. Added to that, Sasha adores him at first sight. But is Matt only helping them in order to earn himself professional recognition and a hefty university grant? How can she deny being drawn to him with every breath she takes as if she has known and loved him for a thousand years? How can she dare to trust him when not only her heart is at stake, but Sasha's heart is in the balance as well?

5.0 von 5 Sternen one of the best books I have ever read. 14. August 1999

I have never read a book and been so anxious to read the authors next book. I finally came across Circle of Time and it is as well written and intriguing as the first.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fantastic Fairy Tale!!! 19. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! It was so refreshing to read such a creative romantic modern day fairy tale with a twist! I look forward to her next book! What a refreshing way to tell a story. After reading other reviews the only thing I agree on is the fact that I do wish the book had gone into some more detail to make it longer. I only say this selfishly because I didn't want it to end! GREAT BOOK!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Overall, a good plot and well written story. 13. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
When I read the synopsis, I thought this book would be interesting because of my love for all things old. Myths, legends, anything historical, I have a fascination in. In that field, I was not disappointed. The only thing that could be improved in this story is making it a bit more clear. At times, I felt the plot was just whizzing by and wished there were more detail. The ending also came as a bit of a surprise, but I like surprises :) The romantic aspect of the novel was also a nice touch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Teriffic storyline and great characters! 10. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
THE STARRY CHILD is one of the best books I have read this year. The characters were wonderful, and I loved the opening scene. I was immediately captivated by the heroine and her little girl. And I couldn't put the book down. Great job, Ms. Hanna. I can't wait for the sequel.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
The storyline of this book has so much promise, and I am glad to see that there will be a sequel. Insofar as a plot goes, I loved the ideas even if the execution landed a little short of its mark. I really WANT to give this book a good review, but find that I am stuck at the 3 star rating. Ms. Hanna goes into fairly good depth with the personalities of the charaters, explaining why they were the way they were and I appreciate that. The only problem is, that it seemed like she did so at the expense of plot detail. Things happened so quickly that I almost felt cheated. It seemed to me that everything was preordained, so why bother? I am looking forward to her next novel, but maybe it can be a little better executed...?
