The Time of the Hunter’s Moon was the first Victoria Holt novel I ever read, and it remains my favourite.
The heroine, Cordelia Grant, is an educated and spirited young woman who actually has a career (in an era when many women didn’t) and the hero is her intellectual match. He starts off rather arrogant and dastardly but does reform by the end and remains charismatic and attractive throughout.
Even if on the cover art of my copy he looks a bit like Terry Wogan!
Fans of Victoria Holt will enjoy all the usual touches here: the mysterious glamourous ex mistress of the hero, plenty of danger, strange legends, secrets from the past that need to be revealed.
All it all it’s a great story, not just a great romance. There’s so much to enjoy here.
