While I am making suggestions, I vote we kill off Amy. She was interesting in book one, and forgivably grieving and morose in book two, but by this book she has become absolutely annoying with her dithering and obsessive whining. Off with her head!
Will I read the fourth, and horrors, the fifth? Maybe, or maybe Connie Willis will start writing again and I can consign Vosika and her wretched crew to the cyber dump heap.
The story continues directly where the second installment, The Minstrel Boy (The Blue Bells Chronicles) The Minstrel Boy: Book Two: The Blue Bells Chronicles (Volume 2) has left us. Like the first two installments, this third installment was such an original, adventurous delight.
To recap in a nutshell; self centered, arrogant Shawn Kleiner travels back approximately 700 years in time to the year 1314.. (from book #1 Blue Bells of Scotland: Book One of the Blue Bells Trilogy). He struggles to accept, adapt and deal with the horrifying nightmare which ensues, while trying to get back to his own time. Shawn struggles to survive - - to come to terms with this bizarre nightmare of being thrust back in time. He adapts...makes friends while learning many life changing lessons. Shawn isn't one to exactly pay attention to anyone or anything. He can be very superior, pompous and overbearing. Yet through it all..through this fantastic nightmare that he's found himself living in... he can laugh at himself and his predicament too. It's his way of coping.
Niall Campbell...loyal and courageous...sometimes headstrong and overly confident. A gentle man and a Highland Warrior.. and he could be Shawn's twin. They're identical in appearance. Niall is next in line to be Laird of Glenmirril. And he's living in the year 1314. He knows what has happened to Shawn (after-all, it happened to him!)...and as time passes, he begins to look upon Shawn as a brother.
Shawn's ex-girlfriend, Amy Nelson is living in the 21st century. She knows what has happened to Shawn and eventually comes to terms with this fantastic knowledge...all the while fighting to get him home. She's come to terms with Shawn's lying, cheating ways and the scoundrel that he was. Even so, she blames herself for his dilemma and works feverishly to get him home....somehow.
Angus MacLean is a Scottish Inspector (Inverness), who, against his better judgement, has fallen in love with Amy. I utterly adore his wholesome, strong character.
I absolutely loved this entire story. There are so many profound lessons in this magnificent adventure of Shawn Kleiner, Niall Campbell and Amy Nelson. Learning to forgive yourself (or circumstances). Accepting culpability....your faults and trying to better yourself. Accepting who you are. Learning to trust and be trusting. Facing truths about yourself staring you in the face & forgiving. Trusting and believing in God's miracles and learning to have faith in God. Releasing bitterness. On and on the lessons go.
This story is such a commanding time travel performance. The Author gracefully eases the reader from one era to the next with fluid talented ability. Absolutely superb storytelling at its finest. The power and excitement of the final battle (in this third installment) had me sitting up straight on the edge of my seat, reading faster and faster...propelling me into the battles (both 14th & 21st centuries). An absolute stunning & dramatically delicious tango. And when I approached the closing pages, a feeling of profound regret came over me...as I realize I am about to temporarily sever a relationship with characters I have grown to love. As the pages dwindle, I feel as if something precious is being taken from me, that cannot be replaced.
I anxiously await book #4 "Westering Home" with bated breath.
