I am sure that I am not the first American to get frustrated by the complicated history of the British Isles. It seemed that everyone thought they had a legitimate right to the throne of Scotland. All the politics, treachery, betrayal that went on sometimes had me giving up on a book. When I was in school we were taught American History, and I am woefully ignorant of the history of a Country that has been around for thousands of years.
But I am learning, and Victoria's Virtue is a stunning novel of Love, Beauty, and Faith with the backdrop of a time and place she invites you into, I was enthralled from start to finish. This is a truly a love story for all time. Alexander has spent his life in a Monastery since he was 4 years old. He only has vague memories of his family. He has never thought about leaving the monastery because he has nowhere to go. Then he is sent to the Castle Kilmuir to tutor the heir.
Sybylla lives at Castle Kilmuir with her brother and cousin. She has never been kissed and has not met any man that tempts her. She is expected to make a advantages marriage that will be an ally and support her brother's ambitions. Just when she thought that she would never find love she meets Alexander. They are instantly attracted to each other. Alexander knows that he can never have her, he is penniless and has no way to support her. Sybylla doesn't care about that, she loves him.
They will become hostages of the expectations of Sybylla's brother, the King and the politics and dangers of the time that they live in. There are no love matches, only arranged marriages that will benefit a family, clan or throne.
Victoria's descriptions of the Highlands of Scotland are magnificent. The story is wonderfully intricate and the characters unforgettable. I have always been a fan of Victoria's Historical Romance and consider myself her #1 fan. If you love romance, stunning writing and Scotland you have to read this book.
The plot is enthralling, the characters are interesting, and this book was a thoroughly engaging read from start to finish! I highly recommend this book to readers of historical romance novels who enjoy the history as much as the love story. I am looking forward to the next book to see what happens with this group of people and their future.
