Gone Are the LeavesBook - 2014
Feilamort can remember very little of his childhood before he came to be a choir boy for the Laird and his French wife. At just twelve years old, Feilamort has one of the finest voices in the land. It is a gift he believes will protect him. Deirdre has lived in the castle all her short life. Apprentice to her mother, she embroiders the robes for one of Scotland's finest families. She can capture, with just a few delicate stiches, the ripeness of a bramble or the glint of bronze on a fallen leaf. But with her mother pushing her to choose life in a closed world of prayer and solitude, Deirdre must decide for herself what her life will become. When the time comes for Feilamort to make an awful decision that will change his life forever, his choice catapults himself and Deirdre head-first into early adulthood. As the two friends learn more about Feilamort's forgotten childhood, it becomes clear that someone close is intent on keeping it hidden.
