From the Author
I fell in love with "auld Scotland" years ago while reading Bride of the MacHugh by Jan Cox Speas and was hooked on the Historical genre that included anything and everything Scotland. Later, the works of George MacDonald soon became a family favorite. At the time, I searched for an Inspirational Scottish Romance that was just plain fun and finding little that satisfied my notions, decided to venture into the world of novel writing.
In Heart in the Highlands, multiple characters promote additional story lines with new characters, and twists and turns take the reader on new journeys to unexpected places. I enjoy description, random nothings, corny humor and extra "stuff", so consider these things before reading this book. It is lengthy with purpose!
HIH is a story about hopes and dreams that are transformed into the creative power of faith. Based on Hebrews 11:1, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen", it's about hearing God's voice in simple ways that affect our thoughts and everyday decisions. Above all, it encourages the reader to live a hope-filled life and to see personal dreams fulfilled. So sit back in your favorite chair with a yummy cuppa and treat yourself to this fun, entertaining read!
Highland Mercy, Volume 3 in the Heart in the Highlands series has been in the works for some time now. I've been busy writing other things and will finally complete the work this year.
