Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking novel of passion and betrayal in 17th-century Scotland and the portrait of an unforgettable heroine.

February 13, 1692. Thirty-eight members of the MacDonald clan are killed by soldiers who had previously enjoyed the clan’s hospitality. Many more die from exposure. Forty miles south, brilliant, captivating Corrag—accused witch and orphaned herbalist—is imprisoned in the Scottish highlands for her involvement in the massacre. As she awaits her death, she tells her story to Charles Leslie, an Irish propagandist who seeks information she may have condemning the Protestant King William. Hers is a story of passion, courage, love, and the magic of the natural world. By telling it, she transforms both their lives.

As in her award-winning debut novel, Eve Green, Susan Fletcher shows that she is "a novelist with the soul of a poet" (Booklist). This deeply philosophical and dramatic book is about an epic historic event and the difference a single heart can make—and how deep and lasting relationships can come from the most unlikely places.

What the Critics Say

“A stirring historical romance…. Sweeps out a lot of the old clichés about witches and casts an enchanting spell in favor of bold women everywhere.” (Washington Post)

    Story
    "beautifully written!"
    Was The Highland Witch worth the listening time?

    I enjoyed this book much more than I expected I would. The author has a wonderfully descriptive way of giving us a vision of the natural world and how the protagaonist interacts with it. Having been to the Glencoe area many times (it is one of my favorites places), Corrag's love of the mountains and glens was beautifully brought to life.

    Story
    "Will Fill Your Heart"

    As stated in another review, it took a bit to get into the story. But, once into it, it will fill your heart. It will make you think. It will make you wonder. It will make you cry.

    This story explores the fears of mankind and what is done to be rid of those things and people that are different. It illustrates the life-changing journey of one man as he listens to the story of a woman convicted of witchcraft.

    I cannot say enough about this book. It moved me beyond words. Listen to it or read it. And when you do, open your heart to accept the differences in all of us.

    I listen to audiobooks mainly while commuting 90 minutes a day and when walking. Sometimes when knitting.

    "Enjoyable after you get into the story"

    It took me about 90 minutes before I started enjoying this one. The beginning (which covers the Corag's early life) just really dragged for me. I did start enjoying it once she took off on her own. I'm glad I stuck it out and would recommend it to anyone who likes Scottish locales and historical fiction.

    Story
    "Couldn't get into this one."

    This is the first Rosalyn Landor narrated book that I just couldn't finish. Very dull and boring.
