Synopsis Of Soul Of A Raven

‘I knew one day I would find you. The hare is yours, my dear…’

When Serin discovers a hidden family manuscript, she has no idea what she has set in motion. The old pages reveal the bewildering tale of an ordinary Victorian girl, Wren, who is given an enchanting pendant that changes her life.

Serin reads all night, compelled to discover the fate of her ancestor. Will Wren fulfil her destiny to protect the cursed London Stone, like the witches before her? Or will the relentless raven man be her downfall? Will she lose everyone she ever loved? Will she lose herself?

As Serin reads Wren’s tale, strange things start to happen, and she begins to believe she may have unleashed dormant dark magic upon herself.

 This is a gothic tale of magic and myth, family secrets, love and revenge. It is a tale of the extraordinary, hidden beneath ordinary Victorian lives.

Catherine Bloor

“I grew up in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, studied economic and social history at the University of Liverpool, and have lived in NE Scotland for many years.

“Working at the University of Aberdeen library, I sometimes like to browse the old nineteenth century folk tales hidden away in the stores. I also spend time with my dogs who take me for long walks in the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside, and I try to play the clarinet in a local orchestra.

“My story tells about the life of a Victorian woman called Wren who is given a magic pendant which she must use to protect London Stone.

“Her story moves from Petworth to Chichester to London and she is pursued by Corvus, a raven creature created in ancient times on London Stone, and immortally linked to it.

“Serin, in the present day, discovers this story of Wren, her three times great grandmother, hidden in her mother’s loft, and the book is framed by scenes in which Serin slowly discovers the secrets her family has been hiding since Wren’s life, and realises there must be magic in the world.”
