Single mother Rachel and young son Ember are on the run from something. Or is it someone? Something or someone dark and threatening. They hope that they are running towards a better life, a life of hope and light. But will they be able to remain unseen and fully escape their past? To create the future that they both desperately long for and deserve, in the heart of the beautiful and verdant Irish countryside. Perhaps finding healing in the magical landscape itself. Maybe. Just maybe. With the help and romantic attentions of Ben the solitary woodsman and the surprising friendship of Madame Cyn, the bosomy and outspoken cafe-owner. And a friend that Rachel could never have imagined. A ghostly presence from the distant past, this time a positive force. Add to the mix a mystical forest and the sudden appearance of an orphaned fox cub ... Through it all. Can the flame of hope and love be kept alive?
Interview (short)! with the author, Tara Heavey:
Interviewer: How would you describe your new novel "Flame"?
Tara: Hi there! I would like to think of it as an uplifting love story with a bit of a twist. By that I mean I would also describe it as suspense romance with more than a hint of the psychological thriller about it.
Interviewer: You've written many women's fiction books before, is that correct?
Tara: Yes, this is my sixth published novel and I would love it if it could follow in the footsteps of my previous work and join the ranks of women's fiction best sellers. But as well as commercial success, it is very important to me that I write uplifting novels. In these chaotic times we live in, I consider it a priority to provide uplifting books for women to enjoy.
Interviewer: Thank you very much Tara. I wish you every success in your writing career.
Tara: Thank you.
