Firelight Rising

(The first book in the Lindisfarne series)
A novel by

In the bleak summer light, it feels as though the past is blowing in through each weatherworn stone...

It's 1715, and twenty years after fleeing the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Eva Blake and her siblings return to their dilapidated family home in an attempt to piece together their tattered lives. But a new Jacobite Rising is gaining momentum, and as outsiders from London, the Blakes find themselves under suspicion from the villagers.

When conflict with the locals comes to a head, Eva escapes to the nearby island of Longstone, where the reclusive Finn Murray keeps a makeshift shipping beacon burning on the shore.

Alone on Longstone, Eva and Finn find themselves drawn to each other, despite his attempts to keep her at a distance. But long-buried secrets are beginning to resurface, and Eva can’t help but fear she has made a grave error in opening her heart to Finn.

All she knows is her life is in danger, and she must confront the past if she is to survive.
