Carrie McClelland is writing a bestselling novel about the Jacobite fleet that nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. But she discovers that her novel is more fact than fiction and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her.

Excellent writing, great historical detail that's not boring and intriguing romance. Loved it!

I was born and bred in NE Scotland, and grew up knowing and speaking Doric. This is, without question, the best reproduction of that dialect that I have ever read. I cannot wait to read more of Susanna Kearsley's work.

I found this extremely boring. Not much happens except people talking about things that happened. Lots of tell, hardly any show. Sorry.

Wonderful story. I loved learning all the history of Scotland, and the love stories were very sweet.

This book made history interesting and brought an idea of what historical persons may have been thinking and why they may have acted the way they did. After the first few chapters I was hooked and couldn't put the book down. I disliked how Sophia's daughter was never reunited with her and Moray.

I loved this book. Read it in two days. The story was so interesting. I was drawn into the characters and thought it was a great read.

I liked this book. Story draws you in right away. Although predictable it does not insult your intelligence. Made me feel like I was at the coast of Scotland. Very entertaining!
