Charming and engaging from the very start. Forevermore, gently whisks you away to a land of Scottish mores, creepy resounding castles and stories of old lore. Wrapping you into a short story that sweetly enraptures you, leading into a haunting tale of old ghosts and family secrets.
Ivy’s world couldn’t be in more of an upheaval. Her mother remarried a Laird of Scotland and suddenly they are swept off to live in his castle, but not all lives are made of fairytales. Ivy knows life will not be easy the moment they land in the cold damp sunless world of Scotland, still when they pull up to her new home her heart crumbles. Instead of a glorious fairytale castle, a cold dark eerie castle lays before her. Filled with servants, cooks, dinner times with proper etiquette and an evil grandmother whom Ivy knows is out to get her.
However, the evil grandmother isn’t the bulk of her problems. Ivy feels that there is a presence lurking around the castle and when she goes out to discover the truth, the truth proves to be more than she ever thought possible. The stories aren’t old time lore of make-believe ghosts; a real ghost haunts the castle and wants Ivy out, doing anything possible to get her to leave.
With cursed spells, her mother getting ill and a grandmother lurking in the shadows, Ivy is left to solve the mystery behind the ghost herself. Soon Ivy finds out that confronting the ghost isn’t what she thought it would be, especially when one of the ghosts is a charming, handsome ghost named Logan. As time passes, she realizes that they not only share a beautiful love of music, but of love itself. Forcing them to solve the 200 year old mystery of how Logan became trapped in the castle, and who wants to harm Ivy and her mother.
Cindy Miles is a magical story teller, who weaves a young adult book so pure and beautiful that fans of all ages will be swept away to the Scottish castle of Glenmorrag. I found myself unable to put down this book as its enchanting spell glimmered within its pages. I was quickly caught up within the intrigue and romance between Ivy and Logan, rooting for love to find a way for these two to be together. Characters are gently woven into the storyline where each one easily finds their own place, without distracting or overwhelming from their purpose. Cindy Miles artfully enthralls you with her story but magically creates an alternate storyline within Forevermore. It would be equally thrilling as well and I anxiously look forward to her next haunting romance that awaits us.
