Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mary and Hugh's ending is one of the most moving I've read this year... this journey is worth the ride." " - Dear Author, "Recommended Read"

"Kearsley is an expert at seamlessly merging contemporary and historical fiction... The colorful history and romance of the 18th century, combined with the contemporary mystery, create a tale readers will savor." - RT Book Reviews

"Kearsley's decision to offer a fully developed, romantic lead with the perspective of Asperger's is a welcome and refreshing idea. Incorporating rich historical details that feel as vivid as the present enables readers to quickly lose sense of time as the author weaves threads from two eras into one dramatic tapestry." - Library Journal

"Susanna Kearsley deftly conjures both historical intrigue and a contemporary heroine as unique as she is memorable. -- Deanna Raybourn, New York Times bestselling author" -

"Enchanting! Beguiling! Gorgeously romantic! Susanna Kearsley weaves together a captivating tale of secret codes and hidden desires. " -

""A grand adventure...Susanna Kearsley just keeps getting better and better! --Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author" -

"Fans of historical spy fiction will enjoy the dangers risked by Jacobite sympathizers, while Kearsley's gentle drama and accurate detail are sure to satisfy lovers of historical fiction and romance." - Publishers Weekly
