The Firebirdby Susanna KearsleyExpected publication: June 1st 2013 by Sourcebooks Landmark
Nicola Marter was born with a gift: when she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When the gallery she works in receives a wooden carving she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird, the mythical bird that inspires an old Russian fairytale and was once owned by Russia’s famed Empress Catherine.Nicola’s investigation into the Firebird’s origin draws her into the 1715 world of Anna Logan and leads her on a quest through Scotland, France and Russia, unearthing a tale of love and sacrifice, of courage and redemption.
I’ve only read two of Susanna Kearsley’s novels but I’ve loved both of them. The Firebird sounds amazing too, I can’t wait!
