Mortal Fire

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

When Emma D'Eresby, a 29 year-old, self-contained Professor of History, leaves her Cambridge college for a post in an exclusive university in Maine, USA, she hopes to learn more about a curious 17th-century journal in the College library. Instead, it leads her to a secret that should never have been uncovered. In the States, Emma meets the enigmatic 33-year-old surgeon, Matthew Lynes, a quiet and thoughtful widower. Driven to learn more about him, Emma takes the unique journal from the College library in which she believes there are clues to his family's English past. Meanwhile, the sinister Professor Koort Staahl mounts a psychotic attack on her. Matthew's courageous intervention saves her, but as he nurses her back to health, his unusual attributes raise questions he is unwilling to answer. As Part One ends, she returns to her claustrophobic family, avoiding her domineering father and wrestling with despair.


AUTHOR: Studying history at university, Claire Dunn then followed a vocational route and, with her husband, founded a specialist school dedicated to the needs of children with Dyslexia, Autism and related language difficulties. Returning to her roots to incorporate elements of history into her stories of romance, mystery and suspense, Claire began writing Mortal Fire - the first in five book 'The Secret Of The Journal' series - in 2009, winning Gold in the ForeWord Book Of The Year Awards, 2012. She now divides her time between running the school in Kent and writing in Cornwall.
