This book covers several years in the life of the heroine and her family. She is taken by a slavery and winds up in Scotland where she is purchased by the leader of the clan. He gives her her freedom, but she wants to repay the money he spent to buy her. She will teach his children.

The heroine is a Jew. Our hero is a widower. The pair are attracted to each other, though she feels the difference in their status. But he is willing to overlook it and convinces her to marry him. He will keep her secret of being Jewish and that she had been purchased from a slavery. His clan may not be understanding.

The story takes us through their lives -- through war. separation and treachery. The hero had a mistress before marrying the heroine, but ended the relationship when the heroine joined his household. That comes back to haunt him, as well as the heroine's background.

There are kidnappings and fighting. There is the side story of the hero's daughter from his first marriage.

It went on a bit too long for me, but the reader gets a full story.

I loved the book. I was transported to eighteenth century Scotland by the language and details of that era and the ease with which the characters and scenes came alive in my imagination. I'm in awe of the research that must have gone into this work.

This was a well written, well researched story that had really great descriptions and good characters. You get a bit of mystery, religious controversy, an enjoyable romance as you watch Amalie and Garth come together. Realistic, good secondary characters, too. A very enjoyable story.

I truly enjoyed this book. The author does a wonderful job keeping the book as historical accurate as possible. The connection and chemistry bewteen characters are genuine and the development of some of the younger characters are amazing. I would definatly recommend this book to everyone I know.

Different from what I was expecting. Multiple twists and turns from a period of history in Scotland that I was unfamiliar with. Strong characters and good character development.

A very good read. The story of how love can conquer all. A 17th Century story of prejudice. Wonderfully written with very lovable and believable characters.

Amalie can't believe her luck, while going to the market she is kidnapped and taken into a slave ship, her luck starts to improve when she is bought by the McKintosh to become the governess to his children. That is the start to the relationship between them.

Garth is "the Mackintosh" is a man bogged down by responsibility and still grieving his wife death. He feels bad for a woman and the slave market and decides to help her, that decision irrevocably changes his life.

Read along and see how life brings this two strong willed people together in a time fraught with danger, intrigue and political machinations. Get a glimpse at life in the 1700 in Scotland and England.

I absolutely loved this book, the lively characters, the rich plot and great research into the characters background. Live the dictionary and maps provided to better give the readers a grasp on the setting. my first book by this author and definitely not the last.

More About the Author

Internationally published author and poet, I'm now a displaced Southerner from northwest Florida. Kansas City, Missouri is currently my home with my husband and three dogs.
I love to write but hate chasing publishers and editors. The first one tied my hands for a year with a promise and a smile. So in retaliation, my husband and I began Charlie Dawg Press and are publishing for the general market. It's great fun; we're able to help other good authors get their work formatted, edited and into print. We're an independent press with six authors, currently.

All my books and contributions to anthologies are available on Amazon.com in print and Kindle e book. Visit my website at DebKemper.com.
I love a good story!
