To save a nation, Clara will have to see through both the fog of war, and the fog of her own heart…
Sold into slavery as a child, and rendered mute by the horrors she suffered, Clara’s life extends no further than the castle kitchens and their garden. Those who know about her just think of her as the dull mute girl who may be a little soft in the head, not knowing that she carries within herself a precious gift: the ability to see the future. This is a gift she keeps secret, though, for fear of persecution.
However, a vision prompts her to prevent a murder, shoving her not only into the intrigues and gilded life of the nobility but also into a civil war brewing in her country. As events unfold, and she is drawn deeper into the conflict, she meets an old friend, makes a new one, and begins to unearth secrets better left buried.
Driven to learn the truth about the war, and about her friends, Clara embarks on a journey that takes her from her beloved mountains to the very Capital itself, Bertrand, where she is confronted by an evil both ancient and twisted. The only problem is, her own anger and prejudices are the catalysts her enemy needs to complete its plans. If she is not careful, not only will the entire nation be lost, but her own soul as well.
What are people saying about Clara?
I think the theme of fear throughout the novel is very profound and can be applied in our own lives. There are so many atrocities that occur every day in this world, but we can’t let our fear overcome our hope in a better future and love for others. Clara is a beautiful example of this. — Cindy, Cindy’s Treasury of Good Tales
Suzanna Linton’s Clara is a wonderful read and I feel she will be one of the great writers in our day. — Gemma Sandhaus, Literature Butterfly
