“The Shadowy Horses” by Susanna Kearsley
The shadowy horses of the title are the ghost horses which shadow disaster and which the main character is the only one to be aware of. The story is set on an archaeological dig in an area around Berwick-on-Tweed where they are searching for signs of occupation by the 9th Roman Legion. There are interesting characters including a young boy with extra-sensory perception, the only one who can see the ghost, but not the only one to be aware of its presence. The story is part ghost story and part romance, all set around the archaeological dig, with a surprising twist in the tail.
The general consensus of the group was that this book was well written and enjoyable, a good, light read with interesting archaeological detail.
