Five centuries ago the witch Sydney Wyrdd and Scottish clan chief Duncan fell in love, but both know the helplessness of a relationship as he must care for his people above his own needs. She flees into the future for his sake. Sydney helps Tempest the Ancient One regain her lost love. Feeling more than just gratitude, Tempest wants the same for Sydney. Tempest returns Sydney back in time to her beloved.
However, though heartbroken and haunted by Sydney, who vanished thirteen years ago Duncan is expected to marry Eileen of clan Carron. That is until Duncan and Sydney see one another as his future bride arrives at his keep. They realize that they still love one another, but the problems that caused her to leave still remain and are compounded by the alliance the honorable Duncan has made through his upcoming marriage with clan Carron.
REMEMBER THE MAGIC is an entertaining romantic fantasy that stars Sydney, a secondary player in previous tales, one who Donna Fletcher's fans have waited for to get her own chance at love. The interesting story line hooks the audience as it seems impossible for the star-crossed duo to find happiness. The support cast, especially the magical beings (like Beatrice and Tempest) and Duncan's sister Gwen, augment the plot. Though Eileen pales compared to Sydney and Gwen, fans will appreciate Ms. Fletcher's magical charm.
