really liked it
Read from January 25 to 27, 2010 — I own a copy


This book is not for the faint at heart.

I really, really liked this book. I wouldn't say that I loved it, but it was certainly better than most Scot themed books I have read. (Outside the incomparable Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series... Of course)

Authentic dialogue, and a lot of drama, with heartache, intertwined a fantastic story of survival and love. War is profound in the pages, and the after effects of such.

100 or so pages into this book, I looked Kathleen Givens up, now interested in reading more of what she has written. And was saddened to find that she passed away suddenly, earlier this month.

An immense talent, lost too soon.
