I read these types of books so rarely now, I forgot how much I enjoy them. For me, this book was not an easy read. The story wasn't hugely complicated, but the language was way up there in the sense that I really had to pay attention while I was reading. Not only was the vocabulary pretty high, there was also a bunch of older Scottish spellings when people were speaking that you have to decipher too.

The book assumes a decent amount of Scottish history knowledge. I wouldn't say I felt lost, but t

I get that it was based on very old stories, but this was a bit of a strange one.

Taffy came across as very American, even though she'd only visited, plus she was extremely modern for an 1888 girl! That and the early typo stating she had gone back, 1964 - hope that's been corrected in later editions.

It was the emotions at the end that saved it for me.

Recommends it for: Time-Travel Romance
Nice Time-Travel! Taffy is taking pictures of Scottish ruins--AKA haunted castle. She hears Malcolm talking to her and she finds his remains (minus his hands) and goes thru time to prevent his grissly death.

I loved that she brought a gun with her and used it!

There are fairies and magic in this one.

This book suffered from a pretty good plot idea that was executed poorly. Bad characterization and poor writing means that it was a good thing this had a good plot
