Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an absolutely brilliant novel I quite enjoy Burrowes? writing style. She?s eloquent yet fun. This author paints a breathtaking picture of the highlands. Not only can you see it, but you can smell it and all the castle?s surroundings. I?ve never seen an author bring your olfactory senses so far to the forefront of a novel before. She captures your heart and mind with the possibilities in this magical novel. Burrowes also deals with some topics that are not only difficult today but would have been indescribably taboo at the time. This makes her tale even more intense than it would have been otherwise. It also breaks your heart, but gives you faith in mankind. My first thought on the cast in this novel? The uncle is so skeazey that you can feel the slime coming off of him, even before you really get to know him. I appreciate the fact that the male lead, although a laird and war hero, still tries to be a better person. He also tries to make things right by his wife. He never expects nor demands from her. He is caring and emotional without giving up the essential toughness of a laird. The female lead?s protective yet secretive nature is quite understandable based on her estrangement from her husband and lack of other family. It becomes even more so when you find out her entire story. Her persistence and resilience is astounding. This is a fantastic tale that transports readers through time and space to the Scottish Highlands of old. It was a complete story in and of itself. Even though it?s part of a series, I can easily be read as a standalone. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
