Jesse Marley calls herself a realist; she's all about the here and now. But in the month before Prince Charles and Lady Diana's wedding in 1981, all her certainties are blown aside by events she cannot control. First, she finds out that she's adopted. Then she is run down by a motorbike.
In a London hospital, temporarily unable to speak, she uses her left hand to write. But Jesse is right-handed. And, as if her fingers have a will of their own, she begins to draw places she's never seen before and people from another time - a castle, a man in medieval armor. And a woman's face. Rory Brandon, Jesse's neurologist, is intrigued. Maybe his patient's head trauma has brought out latent abilities. But wait - he knows the castle. He's been there.
So begins an extraordinary journey across borders and beyond time, a chase that takes Jesse to Hundredfield, a Scottish stronghold built a thousand years ago by a brutal Norman warlord. What's more, Jesse Marley holds the key to the castle's secret and its sacred history. And Hundredfield, with its grim Keep, will help Jesse find her true lineage. But what does the legend of the Lady of the Forest have to do with her?

Make sure you listen to the sample of this one, to determine whether or not the narrator's going to drive you nuts. After a while she stop bothering me so much, but it was really rough at the beginning
gluten-free and happy
I LOVED the female narrator, Anne Flosnik. She really drew you in.
I enjoyed that the "present" day story took place right before Princess Diana married Prince Charles. I remember being so excited about the wedding. I also love when stories tell you what was happening in the past to set the stage for the present time.
Anne, pleasant, lyrical, interesting. John, accent, manly, a bit choppy.
I'd hate to give anything away but the information about her mother and siblings, saddened me and surprised me.
My name is Kate, I preferfiction and fantasy. Not so much the alien-fromanother-planet-sci-fi stuff but the witchy books. I like to escape reality every now and agian. faiction amd fantasy provide me that outlet.
Narrator's voice was horrible but great story! I really did suffer through it primarily because it was so well written and interesting. I hope I never have to listen to that narrator again though...
