The Silver Bough

(2006)
A novel by

 
 
The award-winning author of The Mysteries returns with another captivating novel in which modern-day enigmas and age-old myths come together to bear spellbinding fruit.

Nestled on the coast of Scotland, Appleton was once famous for its apples. Now, though the orchards are long gone, locals still dream of the town's glory days, when good luck seemed a way of life. And outsiders are still drawn to the charming village, including three very different American women. . . .

Enchanted by Appleton's famously ornate library, divorcee Kathleen Mullaroy has left her cosmopolitan job to start anew as the town's head librarian. . . .

Widowed Nell Westray hopes for a quiet life in the place she and her husband spent their happiest moments. . . .

And young Ashley Kaldis has come to find her roots.

But when a sudden landslide cuts Appleton off from the wider world - and the usual constraints of reality - the village reveals itself to be an extraordinary place, inhabited by legendary beings and secret rooms. Most unexpected is a handsome stranger who will draw all three women into an Otherworld where, as in Eden, the bite of a single apple can alter the course of reality . . . if only one of them will believe.
