Goodreads Summary: In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown.
Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write.
But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth-the ultimate betrayal-that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her…
How I Got It: I bought it.
When I Got It: At least 3 years ago, maybe more.
Why I Want To Read It: Admittedly, I fell in love with all of Susanna Kearsley’s books based on their gorgeous covers. But when I read the back of it, I was completely intrigued by the story. It’s gotten set to the side so many times. I read my first Susanna Kearsley book last year, an ARC of A Desperate Fortune, and absolutely loved it so I’m going to move this one farther up to the front of my TBR.
