Publisher's Summary

The sixth and final book in the captivating series which follows the lives of Beth and Alex MacGregor, their family, and friends. 

Alex, now believing Beth to be alive, leaves Scotland and heads south to keep the promise he made to her at Culloden, determined to be reunited with his wife regardless of the danger to himself. 

Meanwhile, the Duke of Newcastle has realised that he cannot kill Beth, either publicly or privately, without attracting the enmity of powerful people, including the heir to the throne. He hits upon a way of being rid of her forever; transportation to Antigua as an indentured servant for life. By this deed he hopes that the terrible conditions on the sugar plantations will achieve the much-desired death of the woman who has defied him for so long. 

Things do not go according to plan, and soon, Beth finds her life going in a direction neither she nor Newcastle could have foreseen, which leads her to make a decision that could have a terrible impact on Alex as he attempts to discover her whereabouts. 

Join the rebellion as Beth and Alex fight to survive and be reunited in...the Jacobite Chronicles.

Wonderful ending to a great series

As with every book In the Jacobite Chronicle Julia doesn’t disappoint with Tides of Fortune, a great ending to a truely brilliant series. With her own unique talent for storytelling, she weaves historical events, people, places and their way of life with her own wonderful characters that you can’t help but love, into a page turning story that you can’t help but become emotionally involved in. The excellent narration by all especially by Will, bring Julia story and characters vividly to life. I look forward to her next series

Love this series

The only thing I did not like about this book is that it ended! After reading all six books (waiting a year for this one to come out) I feel so invested in their lives that I wish it had gone a bit farther into the “happily ever after”
Start with book one, read all six books! You will not be disappointed. I literally want to read the whole set again.

How can it be over? I'm not ready to say good-bye!

Such a long wait for this last audio to come out, but it was so worth it! I will muddle through, knowing Julia is writing more books focusing on some of the characters and I can hardly wait. I'm preparing to read the three already out...Sarah's story, Harriet's story, and Caroline & Philippa's story. Waiting with bated breath for Alex's book!

This book lets you down so neatly and beautifully in the end, but not before our protagonists go through some thrills and adventures as they get there. Our favorite characters will live on because I have these books tucked neatly away and will take them out over and over again to enjoy! What a wonderful series this was!

As in Book 4, the narration was something of a disappointment though I had begun to grow accustomed to the new female voice and its distracting lilt and frustrating, lack-luster tones when reading the narrative. Interestingly, she was at her best when voicing her Highland characters, so wonder if she might be of that nationality. Again, Will Watt carried the day and gave his usual flawless performance. The introduction of two new narrators was an interesting addition with their strong Caribbean accents. I like them a lot.

In conclusion, I would say that I have nothing but good to say about Julia Brannan's Jacobite Chronicles. It was a wonderful adventure made even more enjoyable by great narrators and knowing how well-researched this historical story was. I will read/listen to everything this author creates!
