Now, American writer Carrie McClelland hopes to base her next bestselling novel on that story of her ancestors in the dim, dark past . Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she starts to write.

But as Carrie's mind slips back in time, she learns of the ultimate betrayal that happened all those years ago, making her the only living person who knows the truthand that knowledge comes very close to destroying her.

Enchanting, but slow beginning

I almost gave up trudging through the beginning of the book, however once it got going it was hard to put down. I found myself thinking of Scotland and the characters throughout my day and couldn’t wait to read again before bed. It certainly made me want to book my own trip to see Slains and stay in a coastal cottage.

What an incredible read! I could not put it down even tho I HAD to take my time! The history lesson was awesome! But the best was the story from the woman about her descendants! I can’t wait to continue reading her books.
