Oh you see, she's not truly a witch she is just in love with science and knowledge which rubs the clergy of the area in the wrong way.
I liked this book, the flow, pace and editing were spot on. The characters were well developed and you understood what motivated each character. The plot was unique and adventurous. My only critique is the inclusion of the 'winters stone' and the mysterious old lady that delivered it. I felt like those should have been left out or further developed. For me that sub plot never really went anywhere.
All in all this was a lovely story and I would recommend this author and this book again and again.
Alisoune is set upon by medieval Scottish villagers who are convinced she is a witch. Alisoune is instead a woman of science who reads Copernicus and is somewhat of an inventor. She crafts eye glasses for people and is a self taught engineer. She does not believe in magic. Unfortunately, she must run for her life and she stumbles upon Lachlan's little abode.
Lachlan is a knight who is missing his leg from battle but his deeper wounds are internal to the soul. He just cannot forgive himself for the death of his brothers in battle. He has survivor's guilt and he feels unworthy of any scrap of happiness. He has a wonderful deerhound who is his only friend.
Alisoune changes his world with her optimistic nature and her unconditional love. Finally he has found someone who looks past his missing leg to his character. Lachlan tries to be a gruff man but his bad attitude dissipates around Alisoune, who teaches Lachlan about the power of forgiveness. This is the central thread of the story, can Lachlan ever see past his own faults and just learn to love himself. This is a charming story.
This is a safe read. Hero is heroine's one and only. There is no cheating. The H/h were perfect for each other.
