Don't look here for the romance-novel version of the Highland hero, the laird of the castle, the knight in shining armour. Ailean MacLachlainn is from a family of poor crofters -- what we might call tenant farmers or sharecroppers today. Highlander life is hard, sometimes wretched, and though Ailean's early life holds some promise, he will see everything he loves turn to ashes while he is still a young man.
Yet he manages to carry on through losses that would break a lesser man. Lyn's creation of her protagonist is the embodiment of the novel's dedication, "...to our Scottish ancestors, who suffered so much, yet endured it all without complaint and without succumbing to self-pity."
Written with the smooth, solid prose so lacking in much of today's popular fiction, High On a Mountain is a winner. I highly recommend it.
"High on a Mountain" is this last kind of book. This book has the kind of characters that haunt your sleep, and a story that occupies your daydreams. The fast-paced story is hard to put down in an addictive way. I can't tell you how much I loved this epic; it's definitely Tommie Lyn's masterpiece.

There is not one single curse word or sexually explicit part in the book. How refreshing to read pure literature and not the raunchiness that compromises quality literature.
I learned so much about the Clan Wars which is of special significance to me as a member of the McMillan Clan. My ancestors came to this county from Scotland near that same time.
Tommie's research is amazing. Her historical fiction is enchanting. You won't want to put this down. You'll fall in love too. Tommie is finishing up Book 3 - Across the Wide River -- which includes the Trail of Tears. Then, she will begin research for Book 4 - On the Red Clay Hills - which will take the MacLaughlainn family through the War for Southern Independence. That's great news for me and my Confederate friends. http://astore.amazon.com/thereakee-20

Depressing, I would not recommend this book to a true romantic.
It made me want to write a review which I never want to do.
But I had to warn the next person.
