Lamp Black, Wolf Gray by Paula Brackston

Lamp Black, Wolf Grey

Laura and her husband Dan have moved to Wales from London for a fresh start, but from the first, Laura is more entranced with the rural countryside than Dan is. And since Dan is still working in London, Laura is spending the week there alone. This is, in some ways, a story about a woman who “goes native” and how it endangers her and all she thinks she values, but there is a parallel story, set in the distant past, of Merlin and a young woman he falls in love with, and the ripples that story has on the present day echo throughout the book. Strangely haunting.
