Verity Grey abandons her comfortable job at the British Museum to seek adventure on an archaeological dig in the wilds of Scotland. But when she arrives on site, she discovers that the excavation is being led by a discredited and eccentric old man who has forsaken scientific evidence. Instead, the entire team is following the word of a local boy who claims that he saw a ghostly Roman soldier in the fields.
As she becomes entangled in a subtle web of treachery and danger, Verity begins to believe that there is a Roman sentinel haunting the site. And he's there to do more than guard the bodies of his fallen comrades...
Susanna Kearsley is a new author for me, until this novel I had not read any of her books. I enjoy historical fiction so I thought this would be right up my alley. I was not disappointed. It was slow to start, then the historical mystery picked up and with the romance built in, along with the supernatural thread it was a perfect fall read.
