When bestselling author Carrie McClelland visits the windswept ruins of Slains Castle, she is enchanted by the stark and beautiful Scottish landscape. The area is strangely familiar to her but she puts aside her faint sense of unease to begin her new novel, using the castle as her setting, and one of her own ancestors, Sophia, as her heroine. Then Carrie realises her writing is taking on a life of its own and the lines between fact and fiction become increasingly blurred. As Sophia's memories draw Carrie more deeply into the intrigue of 1708, she discovers a captivating love story lost in time. After three hundred years, Sophia's Secret must be told.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enchanting & captivating read Such a beautiful,haunting and enthralling story...I never wanted to put the book down and spent many a night reading into the wee hours. I've noticed that the author is never forthcoming with the protagonist's outward appearance and features which makes it hard to visualize the character but this doesn't take away from the beautiful and descriptive story as it unfolds.
