#TOUCH NOT THE CAT By Mary Stewart


I have not read this book before, but as it is vintage Mary Stewart, it did not disappoint. The background is set at Ashley Court, entail estate located in England. Ashley Court is like so many others in England that no preservation group is willing to assume responsibility for it. A portion has been set aside allowing the public to tour the estate. The family quarters are let out to a wealthy American. The family lives in a small cottage on land that does not entail. Since an Ashley married a gypsy woman who was later burned at stake as a witch. Members of the family have inherited telepathy known as the ‘Ashley sight’. Bryony has the ‘sight’ and has been communicating with her ‘Lover’ since childhood. Her father has died and the estate has passed to her cousins. Emory needs to break the trust as he needs the money to save his business. Bryony’s father died in Spain and his death is a mystery. The book has numerous twists and turns to hold your attention. I found it difficult to put down. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
