I have read almost all of Deborah Smith's books (some of them twice) and she is one of my favorite authors. This book however is not good. It is unrelentingly depressing until the very end, which is very unsatisfying. It's a real stretch to call it a happy ending.
The reader, however, makes the book even worse. Her "voices" are grating and just plain bad. And she mispronounces words throughout the book; words like bedraggled, enveloped, enveloping, and the Jewish ritual of "Seder". Where were the audio editors?

What took me so long to react?
This was my first Deborah Smith audio. I can't remember when did I downloaded this but after listening to A Place To Call Home and A Gentle Rain, I have to listen once again to Silk and Stone. In a way like a DS Marathon.
It's a fantasy for Jake Raincrow to have that instinctual sense when it comes to Samantha. From the first time they met, nature and all it's elements shaped their meeting, their separation and their reunion. The wicked witch comes in the form of Samantha's aunt, the fairies in the form of Jake's sister and his granny's old friend.
Enchanting Heart? True. What took me time to review? The enchanting part just didn't stick with me though the story brought me strong and mixed feelings to the way Jake and Samantha eventually beat the odds.
A credit worthy nevertheless. Looking for my next Deborah Smith listen.
