My Opinion:
Absolutely fantastic and best written historical romance book I have ever read. This stoy had my emotions up and down and I loved it! I cried within the first three chapters of the book. That's how great this is. If any book could get my emotions just wrung out like this, it has to get the highest recommendation I have ever put forth to a book. I have read hundreds of books, but this might be the first, in my memory, that I have ever cried from. That's how touching and descriptive scenes from this book were. Genevieve has out done herself in this novel. I can't wait for book two and there will even be more in this series.
We are taken through the life of Maggie, a girl from South Carolina that has dreamed of a boy since she was very young. Across miles and oceans. They don't know each other. They have never met, yet in their dreams they do. Maggie has the gift of sight. She is able to see things that are going to happen or are happening. Yet, it doesn't let her see everything. She can not read everything in her own future but she does get flashes of things that will happen and to the people around her. We are lead through some HORRIFIC occurrences in her life and her growing up and becoming a woman.
Then we watch as the man Maggie has dreamed about helps her in ways that are so surreal. She also helps him in his times of need. I loved how they did this for each other. Helping each of them give strength and love to one and other was just magical. I don't even feel like I can give this book the justice it deserves. It's just that great. It's a wonderful and imaginative tale of strength, honor and above all else true love.
I HIGHLY recommend getting a copy of this book.
I give Under the Same Sky by Genevieve Graham 5 or 5 stars and is another of my 2012 favorites!

Her whole life, Maggie has seen him. As a child, she saw him, as a young woman she saw him, and as her life embarked on a path of terror, she saw him. In fact, he is what saved her. Maggie endures a series of horrific events, and through it all, the vision of a man calms her, soothes her, saves her. The man is Andrew, a Scottish lad who also grew up seeing visions, visions of the American lass he will later learn is Maggie. Drawn to each other across years and miles, the two can only hope to survive together.

I told the author, when I was midway through the book, that it was stealing my breath and breaking my heart. She responded that she hoped it would heal my heart as well, and I am happy to say her hope was fulfilled. This book? Breathtaking. Honestly. This is not your typical damsel in distress with a heaving bosom beneath a ripped bodice type of romance novel. This, well, this is pure magic. The story is so incredibly written. The way that Maggie and Andrew have parallel lives, paths occasionally crossing on a metaphysical plane.

Maggie's character is what really broke my heart. This poor girl, her story is so painful. I cannot imagine any reader not having an intense reaction to Maggie's story. And yet, her strength, her will to survive is so beautiful. I felt more connected to Maggie than to Andrew, but I feel certain that without sometimes seeing through Andrew's eyes, this story would have been incomplete. I think it is brilliant the way Graham allows their stories to unfold simultaneously.

There is a deeply spiritual connection between Maggie and Andrew, and that is what makes this story so romantic. I am the type of reader who longs for that type of story in a genre that, despite its name, is often reduced to shallow sexuality. I think real fans of romance novels will enjoy this book, particularly those fond of historical romances and Highland romances.

Genevieve Graham has outdone herself this time.

This book is not for sissies. It is a gripping adventure following the lives of two strong characters who meet and come to depend on each other in their dreams. The background is rich and the characters are folks you would like to know. I began this book and was pulled immediately into the story. A clue as to how much I liked this book: I finished at 3:00 a.m.

It's hard to believe this is Genevieve Graham's first book--it's so beautifully written, so well-plotted, and has such fine characterization. The mark of a good writer is when an author can create a situation (in this case, a psychic connection) that is beyond the reader's experience, yet can still make it feel utterly believable. Graham does this to perfection. This love story of two damaged souls a world apart yet forever in each other's thoughts (even though they have never spoken or met) is unique and beautifully drawn. Maggie lives in America--Andrew lives in Scotland. Each faces monumental obstacles, terrible losses, and crushing hardship, yet they draw strength from their fragile psychic bond to eventually reach their "happily ever after". This is not a book for the faint-hearted, but an authentic look at both Scotland and Colonial America in the 1750s. It is also an endearing and enduring love story. Graham has a remarkable talent.

"...And yet they have never met." This lead in captured my attention. A fantastic story that covers a "sight" that has not been written into fiction nearly enough. The results from each character's ability to support, guide and embrace the other was quite believable and well written. A fantastic foundation was built in this story that sees this ability from all angles, taking it from unbelievable to possibility to believable throughout the story. There were a few scenes that were personally difficult for me to read, which is also high praise for the way this story was written. The reader can actually feel the despair and hopelessness of the victim(s) of a very corrupt, high-profile public official. The anguish is very palpable, and well-written. There is no "bodice-ripping" going on, which for me is an absolute plus! I read a LOT of books (reading is my family's form of "watching" entertainment as we have not had public or cable television in over 18 years), and I prefer to be able to read a book without characters constant "laveing" and "groping" each other every two pages. Good sex scenes that are written without the usual droll/oft-repeated verbiage and making the reader feel like a voyeur is a breath of fresh air; and not having such scenes thrown into a book just to be gratuitous is a huge plus on my part. You can have a "romance" book by expressing all facets of a romance (the development of becoming a couple, laying a clear foundation on which to base a relationship, etc.), not just the sex. A sign of a good "historical" based book is to develop the "it could have happened this way" or "the characters could have done it this way" without boring the reader; Ms. Graham has accomplished this fantastically. If you want exact historical context, I suggest re-reading dry, boring history books.Read more ›
