Historical fiction is not my usual choice but I am so glad I chose to read this one. The dialogue is difficult to read but you soon get used to the scotts broad dialect and I found reading phonetically helped immensely. The story is so real you can imagine the characters and setting with ease and even those people with only a little knowledge of historical scotland can not fail to recognise the references to the famous struggle the people fo scotland faced against the English. I thoroughtly enjoyed this book, it is the first book I have read by Cherime MacFarlane and will definitely not be that last, I particularly liked the fact that although this was Number 8 in the series my lack of having read the others was irrelevant and in no way detracted from my enjoyment of this book. Very highly recommended.

The story begins with the aftermath of the battle of Culloden. Every male from the clan MacGrough went to stand by their King’s side, knowing full well they would not survive the massacre. The laird, whose responsibilities stretched further than present events, ensured the survival of his clan by ingenious means. I will not reveal what he did – suffice it to say it was very effective. From then on, a battle for survival ensues.

The only survivor and new laird, Edan, steers his people through the mire of dangers and prejudice rife at the time, and while their lives are not easy, the incredibly strong bond between these people enables them to prosper and move forward.

The author employs a great deal of Scottish vernacular in dialogue, in an attempt to give a better flavor of the time and place, and in this, she succeeded. At first, I resisted having what to me is an odd accent slow me down, but soon I settled into the rhythm of the characters’ speech, and loved my time there. I found I needed to get back to the book as soon as I could make time in my busy schedule. I missed reading about the MacGroughs whenever I was doing something else.

There is an enormous amount of detail in this book. I’m sure it’s taken days and even weeks of research, and for that I am grateful. I loved being immersed into the clan, and the atmosphere, and as soon I as I was finished with the book, I contacted the author and asked if there were any more. That is the sign of a good book. I loved that world, and I hated to have to leave it. I wanted back in.

To say I love this book is putting it mildly. Very rarely does a book pull me in so completely. I found myself reading it slowly. I savored it, enjoyed it, and did not want to rush through, and yet toward the end I could not put it down and I stayed up way past my bedtime to get to the climatic ending.

The use of dialect was very well done. The character development was exceptional and the author lead me down quite a path as I watched Rhona change from a young person I disliked to a mature woman I admired. My favorite character was the twisted laird himself, Edan. He was a brave and honest man of honor, who did whatever he had to do to take care of his tightly knit little clan. His goals and struggles were fascinating to me.

I'm trying to not give away spoilers. I was so excited to finish the book and realize there are more books in the series! You can bet I'll be reading more from this author!

I have read several of Cherime Macfarlane's novels in this series. To date this novel is my favorite. I enjoyed the language and the story line has tightened up. Being a fan of historical fiction the novel also pikes my interest and takes me to worlds that were real and not fantasy. Book 8 is engaging but also stand alone - you can read any of the novels in any order without losing meaning. If you want to escape to another time, enjoy flawed human characters (a real person) you will enjoy this book and the others - exciting and wonderfully researched.

Cherime MacFarlane is a prolific writer. I've missed a few of her MacGrough family sagas, but you can be certain that won't always be the case. I have chosen not to read them in any particular order...this method works for me. I may get hints about past stories, but knowing the final outcome doesn't ruin a thing for me. Edan MacGrough has a twisted leg, yet carries the weight of responsibility of what remains of the clan. At times the burden becomes too much. This laird is all too human. He loves, he loses, let's revenge get the better of him, and somehow finds his way back home. The journey of the Twisted Laird is just as twisted as his leg and I enjoyed every minute of it.
