In the Valley of the Mountains

This is the final book of the Shadows of Brierley series and I would have to say that it was my favorite of the four books. Gillian is Wren and Ian's oldest daughter. She's old enough that she has two younger siblings already married. She's not sure exactly what her life will hold for her, but she's hoping that marriage to a wonderful man that she loves with the same kind of love that her parents share will be in it somewhere. Gillian has a wonderful gift, she has the gift of being able to sense the presence of spirits from beyond the veil and they are able to help her in ways that enrich her life and others around her. She's not exactly sure what to think when family friend Hugh asks her to go on a picnic with him, just the two of them, but she's thrown for a loop when he asks her to marry him. Hugh is twenty years older than she is and he was deeply in love with a woman who died in a tragic way years earlier. Hugh knows that he and Gillian could be happy, even if she isn't as deeply in love with him as he is with her. Gillian eventually makes up her mind to marry Hugh, but the very next day she meets Jamie. Jamie is Ian's nephew, but not technically related to Gillian as she was adopted by Ian and Wren (confusing, I know). Gillian feels a very deep connection to Jamie immediately, but can it turn to a deep love, and is Jamie the kind of man that Gillian wants to marry? I enjoyed the story of this book, sometimes it did seem kind of slow moving plot-wise. But all in all, I would read this one again.
