Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous prose, great story! I loved this book so much, I bought two copies: one solely to lend out and one to keep. I bought the first while on a holiday in Scotland with my daughter to visit Glencoe, a place important to my ancestors. The prose is so beautifully written that is draws you into the world of Corrag and wild things. The author did a ton of research about the Glencoe massacre and the land itself, and you feel yourself a part of it.
