** spoiler alert ** Gwen Cassidy (a physicist from the Present time) & Drustan MacKeltar (a Druid from the sixteenth century) . . .

This is yet another story of time travel. I just love how KMM writes time-traveling. The flow of the story is very good. Very good love story.

This book kept me wondering throughout . . . how would KMM pull this through? We all know we can't change the past - without affecting the future, right? But KMM pulled through! By the end of the book, she had me in tears. I can't believe this book made me cry. It's usually sappy Ncholas Sparks books that makes me cry - but not a book like this. And that's why I rated this 5 stars!

FAVORITE CHARACTERS:
- Silvan MacKeltar & Nell = Silvan (Drustan & Dageus' father) and Nell (the MacKeltar's housekeeper). I loved how their love story came about. The anticipation. The lingering. And finally giving in to their feelings

- Beatrice & Bert Hardy = Gwen's newfound friends (Senior Citizen's tour). I LOVE their love story as well. I can only hope for a husband like that!

FAVORITE QUOTES:
- "Don't be in too much of a rush to give it away, Gwen. Find a man who is worthy. Find a man you want to talk with into the wee hours, a man you can argue with when necessary, and a man who makes you sizzle when he touches you." - Beatrice Hardy

- "There are no coincidences in this world, Drustan . . .You must see with the eagle's eye. You must detach, lift above a conundrum, and map the terrain of it. Everything happens for a reason, if you can but discern the pattern." - Silvan MacKeltar

- "My idea of a woman would be one I loved to look at, not because another found her lovely, but because her unique characteristics spoke to me." - Drustan MacKeltar

- "She would be one who would talk with me into the wee hours about anything and everything, who would savor all the tempers of the Highlands, who would treasure family. A woman who could find beauty in the world, in me, and in the world we could make together. She would be my honored companion, adored lover, and cherished wife." - Drustan MacKeltar

- "Control is everything. If you control the cause you own the effect. If you don't events will unfold like dominoes toppling and you will have no one to blame but yourself." - Elizabeth Cassidy

- "Wither thou goest, there goest I, two flames sparked from but one ember; both forward and backward doth time fly, wither thou art." - Drustan MacKeltar

- "A physical injury would heal, a mental aberration was much more difficult to cure." Drustan MacKeltar

- "If aught must be lost, twill be my honor for yours. If one must be forsaken, 'twill be my soul for yours. Should death come anon, 'twill be my life for yours." - Drustan MacKeltar

- "Dishonesty increases disorder exponentially. It's hard enough to communicate when you're telling the truth." - Gwen Cassidy

So far, I've liked all of the Highlander series. LOVED all the men! Now, I must go on & read the rest of the series . . .
