Four years after being drugged and tricked into marriage with 14-year old Willow Givanchy, the unwanted daughter of his deadliest enemy and a reputed witch, Gerard Lytton returns home from America to find his wife and family changed. His mother is dead and his child bride has become a beautiful and capable woman, who has taken her place as mistress of the estate. His father is ill and close to death.Brought up in Ireland by a male tutor, Willow excels in the manly arts of fencing and shooting. She has become well-loved within the Lytton family circle, and has lost none of her fiery independence, even while she longs to take her place by her husband's side and become a "proper" wife to him.
But although nobly born, Willow cannot deny her mother's dark reputation, or her father's dishonour... and neither can Gerard forget it. Willow's past becomes a problem to them both even while they fall in love. When Willow's mother appears, it coincides with that of a raven. A series of mysterious events unfold and they cause an obstacle that threatens to tear Gerard and Willow apart for ever.

Interesting but depressing
I enjoyed the story & loved the narrator's accent
The story was very interesting, with plenty going on to keep you from getting bored.
I liked that the female lead character wasn't one of the usual simpering girly-girl types that are typical of this kind of book. I liked that she could ride and shoot and fence as well as many of the men.
I really loved the narrator's accent. I could listen to him read all day! I didn't have any problems keeping up or telling who said what. I was surprised to read this in the other reviews when I finished listening.
There were no extreme reactions, however, I was satisfied at the end of the book..
