As a gifted healer, Fiona O’Brien has led a magickal life, though most certainly not an easy one. 

Born and raised in the small town of Grace’s Cove, Fiona faces undue criticism and scrutiny from the town’s elite and religious sectors. When Fiona is credited with healing the daughter of one of the town's leading families, the local priest demands she be arrested and put on trial. The charge? Witchcraft. 

Only the love of a warm-hearted man with a booming laugh – and the kindness of strangers – will help her win a battle against closed minds and moral hierarchy. Through it all, Fiona holds on to her faith that light must prevail against the dark. 

And when Fiona is given a choice – one which will forever change the fabric of her life – she learns that she must know heartbreak to truly understand her gift.  

Oh my. I've been dreading these last couple of books since that means the series is nearly done. However, I decided it was time to dive into this. 

This story follows the mama bear of the gang of magical ladies. We get to see her "modernly" and her in her youth. She tells her daughter and granddaughter about John her one true love and how she lost him. 

I will admit I dear cry during the scene we knew that was coming. It was all so sad and tragic. I would have a hard time making the choice she did but Grace was right...she had to do it. So sad! So tragic! Ughhhh my poor heart! THE FEELS! 

I adore Fiona and I fell for John. How can you not? Especially with his little sheep pal? Super cute. 

That "priest" was a monster!! GRR!! 

I loved the format of the story. I felt like I was sitting in the room with the girls listening to this tale. I think it helped that I listened to the audio so I was literally listening in on the story. 

Now...I did have an issue with the end. I liked it but didn't. I am still trying to sort out my feelings about what happened. I can't say without spoilers, but I am unsure how I feel. Emotionally I liked it, but reasonable and logical Carole is still grumpy about it. 

For sure I am happy the author left this with a chance at more storylines we can see. There is one more book that follows I am curious to see what happens. 

Should I even say anything about the narrator? She is amazing as per normal. I adore her!!!

Overall, I do think this is one of my favorites of the series. I adored John and Fiona. It made me feel strong feelings. I am torn with the ending. Maybe reading the next book will cement my feelings. We shall see. I'll stamp this with 5 stars. It was just so good even with my fenced feelings with the ending big reveal.
