Reviews of The Glass Guardian by Linda Gillard

www.lindagillard.co.uk [cached]

Linda Gillard has created a completely believable world in THE GLASS GUARDIAN that spans the real & the unreal, the past & the present.
The best ghost stories take place in winter, illuminated by cosy fires & flickering candlelight. Skye is the perfect setting, the bare wintry landscape mirroring Ruth's despair & grief when she first arrives at Tigh na Linne. I'll just say that if you've loved the heroes of Linda's earlier books, you won't be disappointed. Linda Gillard writes convincingly and authentically about emotions and relationships, creating believable female characters who have lived life, and attractive male leads, incorporating serious elements, and humour, as well as always delivering a highly readable, compelling storyline that keeps me engrossed. Here the author gives the reader an extra dimension to the story, offering us a supernatural or paranormal element to the tale. This is a captivating story, dealing with passionate love and tragic death, loss, isolation, family history and secrets. I liked the inclusion of music and the key role it has to play in this story. I love the combination of a love story with a ghostly twist to the tale. A ghost story or a story with a supernatural element wouldn't be my first choice of read, but Linda handles this element in a clever way and incorporates it into a convincing story and consequently I felt drawn in to the ideas raised and open to what occurs. An old, crumbling house, snow falling all around and a handsome ghost...curling up with this book on a dark night would be perfect! Linda Gillard Linda Gillard is an inspiration. I'd love to be able to write as well as her. "Highland Supernatural Love Story" (5-star Amazon.com review by LynnL, 7 June 2012) There is something very special about ghost stories set in Scotland; it just seems to be THE perfect setting and as usual, Linda Gillard has crafted a fine story with the elements of supernatural, mystery, and romance including loves lost and found. THE GLASS GUARDIAN, the latest from Linda Gillard (whose previous books I have read and loved without exception), is one of them. In some ways it's an unusual book to have come from Linda Gillard, but in other ways it really isn't. It has the strongly drawn characters we're used to, the same insightful examination of thoughts and emotions, and that strong sense of place in the Skye setting and the wonderful Tigh na Linne. This is a book that delves into the pain of loss, and the healing power of love, and I found it quite enchanting. I really enjoyed the central narrative which looked at the history of her musician aunt and the wider family history, and while there will be those who say that the narrative turns on a lot of coincidence and chance, it really worked for me in my glorious state of suspended disbelief. This is a story with a strong supernatural element - something I'd normally avoid - but there's nothing unsettling or uncomfortable about it, just a strong feeling of love and caring. In its theme this book reminded me very much of the earlier books by Susanna Kearsley, but its style is totally Linda Gillard. Linda Gillard - Home Linda's Books


Biographical details of author Linda Gillard

www.lindagillard.co.uk [cached]

Linda Gillard
Linda Gillard lives on the west coast of Scotland, in Ayrshire. She's also lived on the Isle of Arran and spent six years on the Isle of Skye. She graduated from Bristol University and trained as an actress at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. For eight years she pursued an acting career, the highlight of which was appearing on stage at the National Theatre with Geraldine McEwan, TV's Miss Marple. The lowlight was playing a fairy for four rainy months in an open-air production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at Regent's Park. Whilst under-employed at the National Theatre, Linda accidentally became a freelance journalist and wrote light-hearted articles for magazines, many based on her semi-self-sufficient "Good Life" in rural Cambridgeshire. For twelve years she had a humorous column in IDEAL HOME about family life. (Her children, now adult, are still trying to live it down.) Linda ran her two careers concurrently for a while, then decided to give up acting to focus on journalism and raising a family. At the age of 40 she re-trained as a primary teacher and taught in Norfolk specialising in English and Art. She decided to re-think her career yet again after she was assaulted by a disturbed pupil. The re-think entailed giving up teaching and downshifting to Skye, realising a long-held dream to move to the Highlands and write full-time. For six years Linda lived on a hillside overlooking the Cuillins, a mountain range featured in her first novel, EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY. Linda Gillard is available for readings, talks and workshops and has written Reading Group Guides for some of her books. (Email her if you'd like free copies.)

LINDA GILLARD: HEARTS AND CRAFTS AND INDEPENDENCE I've just finished EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY, the third of Linda Gillard's novels I've read and enjoyed - the others being HOUSE OF SILENCE and UNTYING THE KNOT. Linda writes about imperfection: her characters are always human and frequently haunted (in UNTYING THE KNOT literally so). Her writing veers from high comedy to pathos to tragedy and back again. Her stories are sustained by the beauty of the descriptions of the landscapes and by the vigour of the sparky dialogue. She is popular because women, grown-up women, are her focus - and grown-up women are looking for grown-up books which will engage them and satisfy them. Commentators on Facebook even weigh up which of her heroes, her imperfect yet chivalrous heroes, is their favourite. EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY's Calum for me, by the way ... So far ...
