Review this Book



Let the truth be told...

SCOTLAND, JULY 1746: an army of occupation ravages the Highlands, committing atrocities with consequences that will reverberate across generations. From this bloody cataclysm, the battle-hardened English soldier Mordaunt saves an infant who will become his heiress and his obsession, and on his shattered estate a traumatised Franco-Scottish laird, Ewen Stirling, offers refuge to a boy damaged by unspeakable horror.

These lives, bound by fate, unfold against the turbulence of the eighteenth century in a magnificent, uncompromising saga of love and the human cost of war.

This is a wonderful period epic, firmly based within historical facts; the author obviously, meticulously researching everything from the uniforms, to the customs of the day, to the weapons and mode of warfare, all the way to the agricultural methods employed by tenant farmers during one of the most awful periods in Scotland’s past. It’s an education about the Georgian period set on an international stage. It’s brathtaking scenes and graphic descriptions make you live this book, rather than just read it. The characters are numerous, but all highly detailed and human. If you love a good literary adventure then you will really enjoy this epic novel.
