Description

In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth - the ultimate betrayal - that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her

Professional reviews

"Carrie McClelland is a novelist searching for a plot who serendipitously takes a wrong turn. On the Scottish seaside she sets eyes upon a bewitching castle that sparks inspiration for her historical novel, which provides a story-within-the-story in this novel. Rosalyn Landor provides delightful Scottish accents for many of the characters Carrie meets inside and outside her novel. As Carrie lives in her quaint cottage by the sea, Landor escorts the listener between a reality filled with the promise of love and Carrie's imaginary world, which features an impending Jacobite rebellion. Landor adds a poetic edge to her storytelling while at the same time giving a dreamy aura to the historical side of the story. B.J.P. 2012 Audies Winner (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
