Nicola Marter was born with a gift. When she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When a woman arrives with a small wooden carving at the gallery Nicola works at, she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird - the mythical creature from an old Russian fable.
Compelled to know more, Nicola follows a young girl named Anna who leads her into the past on a quest through the glittering backdrops of the Jacobites and Russian courts, unearthing a tale of love, courage, and redemption.

Wonderful, just wonderful!
Actually all of it. The romance was engaging, the characters touching and the mystery had a happy ending,
The scenes when Rob spoke to Nicola mentally.
The Story of Anna
The concept of a person with the special ability to hold an object and know its history is fascinating. However that was not fully explored in this story. This could have been a decent short story, not a full length novel.
Also I found the voice performance a bit irritating at times.
I knew I'd like this book, I just didn't realize how much I thoroughly would like this book! From beginning to end. It was such a fabulous book! And the performance was fantastic!
I love audiobooks! They allow me to do my daily chores and get a book read at the same time.
Yes. Susanna draws you in with her amazing storytelling.
Yes, I enjoyed her voice.
Worth listening. I am very glad I took a chance on Susanna's books.
This is a story that I did not expect to turn into the story I was expecting. It was way more than that. The is the back story about the girl with the firebird and the story of a couple that realize thAt they have a whole lot more in common than they know. I loved the early Russian story and today s story as well.
