Though Magnus MacLeish and Lark MacDougall grew up on the same castle grounds, Magnus is now laird of the great house and the Isle of Kerrera. Lark is just the keeper of his bees–and the woman who could provide an elixir to help his ailing wife conceive and bear him an heir. But when his wife dies suddenly, Magnus and Lark find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of accusations, expelled from their beloved island, and sold as indentured servants across the Atlantic. Can they make a new beginning in this New World? Or will their hopes be dashed against the rocky coastline of the Virginia colony?
Laura Frantz’s prose sparkles with authenticity as she digs into her own family history to share this breathless tale of love, exile, and courage in colonial America.
My thoughts and giveaway:
This is a beautiful story or how God can work things together for our good and His glory.
Laura painted a beautiful landscape of Scotland and then the horrific picture of what can happen if you are a criminal, or thought to be.
I had no idea how this book was going to all work out, but of course it did.
Laura’s writing dives into the deep and I don’t find her books a quick, easy read but highly satisfying and enjoyable.
And if anyone else watches Poldark I can’t help but think the girl on the cover looks like Demelza 🙂
