Publisher's Summary

When best-selling author Carrie McClelland visits the stark and beautiful Slains Casle, she decides to use the castle as the setting for her new novel, and one of her own ancestors, Sophia, as her heroine. Then Carrie realises her writing is taking on a life of its own and the lines between fact and fiction become increasingly blurred. As Sophias' memories draw Carrie more deeply into the intrigue of 1708, she discovers a captivating love story lost in time. Please note this title was previously recorded as The Winter Sea

favourite author and story

I loved Kearsley's book Marianna, and it was my absolute favourite until I heard this one. What an amazing performance and what a truly captivating storyline.

I had to slow down the narrator

The narration was the poorest I've come across in my 3 years of listening to audio books.
Weak story line.
do not recommend.

Loved it!

One of my favourite listens to date. Carolyn Bonnyman's narration was excellent. The writing and narration had a beautiful flow so at times I felt like I was listening to poetry.
Loved the story. Great characters. It even made English history enjoyable and easy to follow!
I'll be looking for more from this author.
Please note this book is the same as "The Winter Sea". So annoying when the same book is published under two different titles!
