THE GLASS GUARDIAN is a very different sort of book.
I’ve created no brave new urban world. My setting is an old Victorian house on the Isle of Skye: Tigh-na-Linne, "the house by the pool", with its sad history and beautiful garden. My heroine isn't remotely kick-ass. She’s a rather reserved 42-year old horticulturalist, out of a job and recovering from a multiple bereavement. I’ve written no extended passages of Olympian and largely gratuitous sex. (But there is passion.) My ghost-hero is guilt-ridden, vulnerable and bone-weary of haunting. But I suspect he might break your heart. He broke mine.
THE GLASS GUARDIAN deals with themes common to most of my books: memory, loss, grief, music, family, friendship and of course love. Several of my earlier novels examined the catastrophic consequences of falling in love with the wrong person. THE GLASS GUARDIAN asks, what happens when you fall in love with a ghost?...
I hope you enjoy the answer.
I tried to put the box and its contents out of my mind, but the following day it occurred to me that the key might have been in the lock originally or stored near the box. It must be very small, so perhaps Tom had missed it. It could have fallen to the floor when he was dismantling the wardrobe.
