Book Description

In the late nineteenth century Highlands, when young Cameron Stewart's father is shot and killed, there are many who whisper that the poacher's death was no accident. The locals are quick to point a finger at one of the hated clan Campbell, but the young lad is loath to get drawn in the age-old cycle of death and revenge. Cameron goes to school and soon finds himself a job on the new railway, where his quick intelligence and good education see him rise rapidly through the ranks. Having met and married his first real love, Mary, Cameron's life seems destined for happiness - until his grandmother's death, and the realisation that class still devides his beloved land, set in motion a chain of events leading to murder.

Forced to flee to Canada, Cameron and Mary encounter the wonders and hardships that are the lot of the immigrant's life. After realising that a life on the land is not for him, Cameron joins the Canadian Pacific Railway and their epic undertaking of joining Canada from coast to coast. But all the while he finds himself looking over his shoulder, fearful that retribution is never far behind.

Set in the aftermath of the Highland Clearances, this novel of adventure and romance takes place against a backdrop of a society that will be changed forever by the advent of the railroads...a socity where, even in the New World, the brutality of 'Highland Justice' still prevails...

5.0 out of 5 stars Life in the Development of the Railroads (1880s) June 20, 2011
Format:Paperback
Great book! Easy to read with a captivating storyline. Unexpected insights in the day-to-day life of the late 1880s bring this historical rendition of the building of the railroads in both Scotland and Canada to an enjoyable yet realistic light. Interesting to note that the main character's name is the same as the author's. Can't wait for the obvious sequel to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars HJ review February 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book, although the first third of the book was basically a long "set up" before it really started gaining momentum and getting interesting. Larry Stuart ovbiously did much research with this book as he does a superb job of intertwining history with a very enjoyable storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Read September 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved reading this book. I've always been interested in genealogy and history so the setting and story line in this book are truly amazing. I was drawn in from the start and held through each breath taking and breath stopping moment. The lives of Cameron, Anna and Catherine are so well written I felt like I was right there watching it unfold. I wasn't expecting the ending and only hope there will be a sequel.

This was truly a great book about A family caught up in the injustices the wealthy commit upon the pour. It shows how seeking revenge never pays. Forgiveness as taught in the Bible must prevail.even though our minds desire otherwise. Many innocent pay the price for a rich man's pride and greed, and a poor man's need for justice. Besides that this book is a great look at how the pioneers worked to develop the country.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book February 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was very good. I was quite interested in the story of the expansion of Canada via railroads. It was a very good look into the lives of those immigrants from Europe at that time. Cameron Stuart let a remarkable life, made some bad choices, but always came out fine. He let a very full life and had to great loves in his life. I was prepared for a happy ending, and was very surprised at what transpired. I would think that a sequel is in order about this family's descendants. I would highly recommed this book.
