Thoughts: A really good story weaving Scottish mythological elements, magical realism and the attraction between a consultant to a very wealthy man and the wealthy man’s very mysterious, beautiful and distant secretary. This is a bit older, but I’ve reread this story so many times and loved it each rereading. I really enjoy the author’s writing style and how they set the story up as serious and thoughtful.
