Shattered Silk by Barbara Michaels (1986)
#2
I read this when it was first published, as I had been following Barbara Michaels for years. I don't remember much about it other than I did not like it. I think it was ostensibly a sequel to Ammie, Come Home (maybe just some related characters). Michaels was at her best when she was dealing with a poignant ghost story, but that amounts to only a handful from her prolific output.

I re-read Sons of the Wolf recently and was bored to tears as well. No suspense, the gothic elements were underplayed, and very little evidence of historical authenticity worked into the narrative. I think of some of her early titles very fondly, but then I was a young teenager when I read them. I guess that old agage is true that you can't go home again.
