This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Once heard, the song of a Silvana can never be forgotten. Yet for every man who wins such a wife there are three destroyed in the attempt.
Fabiom of Deepvale dreams of winning the love of a Silvana, one of the mysterious and powerful tree spirits who haunt the deepest groves of the wildwood.
But when he is both thrown into Morene's political arena and also expected to keep the family's silk business running, everything changes. Fabiom fears he will have to put aside his dream, for such a quest is perilous and Deepvale cannot afford to lose its young lord.
However, the piece of amber he finds beneath the huge ash tree could change his mind. If one of the Silvanii is upset enough to weep golden tears at the thought of losing him, then presenting himself on the eve of his seventeenth birth-anniversary might not be so dangerous after all.
What Fabiom does not know, is that the fiercely guarded secrets of silk-making have been sold abroad, putting more than the economic stability of his holding at risk; it was the Silvanii who first gifted Morene’s people with those secrets…
…and they do not take kindly to betrayal.
"By the end of the very first paragraph, I knew I was going to like this, although it's hard to articulate why. It's a feeling I got. Right away. A sense that I was in good hands with this author. Three simple sentences, each doing a different job, and each doing them with poise..." - Jefferson Smith (Immerse Or Die)
"... Beautiful descriptions, heartfelt prose and plenty of action and emotion fill each and every page of this exciting and enjoyable story. Silvana: The Greening pays tribute to the wonders of nature and the need to treat all living things with love and care. Jealousy, greed and hate are contrasted with pure love, dedication and the desire to do right and, just like in real life, success is not always guaranteed. Well written and thoroughly engrossing! The descriptions are wonderfully clear and evocative and the author touches on many difficult topics with sure but gentle insight. The first in the Silvana Series of Novels, this is one book that will resonate with readers of all ages long after the last page is turned." - (5 Stars!)
