    When best-selling author Carrie McClelland visits the stark and beautiful Slains Casle, she decides to use the castle as the setting for her new novel, and one of her own ancestors, Sophia, as her heroine. Then Carrie realises her writing is taking on a life of its own and the lines between fact and fiction become increasingly blurred. As Sophias' memories draw Carrie more deeply into the intrigue of 1708, she discovers a captivating love story lost in time.

    Story

    I already had bought 'The Winter Sea', which was an incredibly rich story, beautifully narrated. When I saw 'Sophia's Secret', I took the synopsis to mean that this was a sequel. I was really annoyed to find that this was exactly the same book - word for word, only by a different narrator. I could have used my credit for buying another gem-of-a-read.

    "Gripping"
    Overall

    One of those rare books I couldn't put down, even in the slower bits. The author has accurately portrayed the emotional conflicts within the characters, who were believable & it was excellently read. The pace started a little slowly, but sped up to be gripping. It had a few elements in it: lost love, mystery, thriller... I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    "An Enticing Read"
    Overall

    I only bought this book because it was available on a cheap special price... but I'm so glad I did. It was very well researched, and Dianna Porter did a terrific presentation, especially with the accents. NOT a book for kids, as it graphically addresses the innocent suffering that occurs during times of polical struggle. It took a little while to get into, as the author presented a lot of detail in setting the scene, but worth perservering as the story really blossoms, with the theme of, what sacrifice is enough to protect the one you love? Gripping. Would highly recommend 'Outlander'.
