Susanna Kearsley is one of my favorite authors. She has such a talent for writing historical fiction with multiple timelines.

The Vanished Days is set in Jacobite Scotland when Adam Williamson is asked to help investigate Lily Graeme’s claim to be the wife of James Graeme. Mrs. Graeme has come forward to claim her dead husband’s wages, but, when asked to provide proof of the marriage, can produce nothing more than her word. Adam is drawn to Lily in a way that he cannot explain and sets out to help her prove her story.

Lily’s story is told in two timelines – that of her childhood, growing up near the Graeme estate with young James and his siblings, and present day. What evolves is a story of friendship and love – love lost and love found. The author tells her story in a way that only she can – combining the rich history of the Jacobite movement in Scotland with a timeless love story.

Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an advanced review copy.
