The writing in the book is wonderful. Fletcher does have a lyrical voice.


Actually, BUT

(and I never thought I would say this about a book that is 386 pages)

the book is too blasted long.

I swear, after I got about halfway in, I just wanted the Glencoe masscare to start (then I felt guilty).

Corrag is arrigned as a witch and tells her tale to an Irishman. The descriptions are lovely, but there is way too much padding in the novel. I found myself more interested about Lesile than about Corrag because his letters were interesting to read. Her story involved riding and running and walking, and falling in love with someone there is absolute no character chemsitry with. I didn't believe she loved him. I believed Lesile loved his wife.

I'm not really upset that I brought this for my Kindle (for under 4 dollars) or that I read it. I did skim the last half of the book though.
