Publisher's Summary

Scotland, 1722: on a windswept island, an enigmatic poetess foretells tragedy and the birth of an extraordinary child.

That child is the free-spirited Flora, daughter of Marion. When her father dies, Flora and her mother are plunged into poverty. Until her mother's former lover takes them to Skye, where he swiftly marries Marion. When the Clanranalds are invited to a grand wedding in Skye, Flora finds herself irresistibly drawn to Allan of Kingsburgh, one of the mighty Skye MacDonalds.

Before affairs of the heart can be resolved, the exiled Prince Charles Stuart lands on the Outer Isles, and his arrival ignites the Jacobite Rising of 1745. Scotland is plunged into bloody civil war, and Flora's fate is changed forever.

not bad

this book held my attention but the characters are too many it's confusing at times a little wordy with no really excitement the romance is few and far between the only reason I finish this book is because I wanted to know what's up with Neil but the writer finish the story with some hurry up love scene and nothing about the other characters

Flora and the Jacobites.....

An interesting story and at a good pace. I feel the narration could have been better. Smoother, less jerky/disjointed sentences and better intonation.
Will listen to others by this author.

Spend your credit on something else

Not interesting enough to justify length. Starts before Flora was even born. Bonnie Prince Charlie section comparatively tiny.

I only finished because I have an interest in the period. It did seem like a fair bit of research went into it.


Narrator does terrible 'voices'.
