I received this book through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. (Thanks!)

"Ayne" is a beautifully told story of Blake Calder, a Canadian farmboy who chooses to join the Army when WWII breaks out. Many years later, he returns to Scotland - where he first landed on European soil, and where he also fell in love - looking for answers to many questions: Why he survived the war, and what happened to the girl he loved? He stands on a bluff overlooking the ocean, telling his life story to an old oak tree

Review by Vicki L. Stenerson ~ Racing Thoughts Book Reviewer

I have an affinity for the British Isles, so I was interested in reading Mary’s book that takes place in Scotland. This story, however, is not about Scotland. It is the journey of one man, through family, war, loss, and love, that will draw you in and wring you out.

Alright here is the truth----I have edited this work-twice as a matter of fact. Does that mean it is not five stars or that I am prejudiced?

Sure as hell it might mean that! However, I have edited a fair amount of books-got them published-one hell of a book to be sure!

It is always I suppose a question of the reader's taste to be sure. This book is obviously my taste or I would not have allowed myself the pleasure of partaking in the editorial process.

If you love Steinbeck, East of Eden for examp

There is no way I can do a review for this book justice. I enjoyed it from start to finish. It was extremely well written. Returning to Scotland to a spot he shared with his love, Blake takes you back to the stories of his small town home life as he remembers the rough times, and then goes off to war (WWII). You can't help but to fall for Blake and feel for him for all he goes through with the tragedies of war and the joy and great turn of meeting a woman on foreign soil. The way the story is ...more
