Swooning Among the Flowers

From Vocabulary.com: To swoon is to faint, due to lack of blood to the brain. Illness, fear, stress, and even happiness can cause people to swoon.

Any bit of exertion carries such a risk for me just now, or, at least, I need to lie down after it.

But I have to walk – slowly – among the flowers. They’re just so beautiful.

Exhaustion levels are deep this time, this flare, this recovery. So are thoughts. Realisations. Illness can bring great clarity. And that’s good. It will lead to better things, better times. I think. I hope.

A Dancer’s Journey Series

Swooning books: A Dancer's Journey series by Ailish Sinclair

Scotland’s all misty lochs and magical forests and perfect boyfriends, right?

When dance student Amalphia Treadwell embarks on a secret relationship with her charismatic new teacher, she has no idea of the danger that lurks in his school in Scotland…

My dance background and love of history and spicy stories are what inspired this wild mix of contemporary romance and ballet set in a castle. Readers of my historical fiction will recognise that castle and the stone circle in these books.

There are no cliffhanger endings in this series; each book completes a story, but then there is more. So much swoony more. Read all the blurbs here

  1. The nice thing about flowers, Ailish, is that they stay still so you can take your time admiring them! Rest up and enjoy them again.

  2. It’s good that you can walk among the flowers in your time of illness and share their beauty with us. Thanks for the share, Ailish. I sure hope you overcome the illness.

  3. Proverbs 3:5-6
    King James Version
    5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

  4. The flowers are gorgeous. My grandmother was always telling me to slow down. She never left her farm all her life.now I’m the same age as she was when I was little I see what she means. To slow down is to really see things more clearly, in detail. I hope you regain your health and energy soon. Best wishes. Karen
