"The last audiobook in the MacIain series takes American Rose O'Sullivan to Scotland to seek help from Duncan MacIain. Narrator Kate Reading does a fine job with the accents, enabling the listener to discern the characters easily, especially the Scottish ones. In 1863, during the Civil War, the pair travel together, enduring danger, the terrors of war, and heartbreak. But Reading doesn't convey the intensity of these events with her performance. A treacherous storm aboard ship occurs and frightening challenges are presented, but listeners won't feel connected to the characters' emotions. Places are described, not experienced. Still, Duncan and Rose's simmering attraction could keep some listening to the end. S.H. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
