This was a very fast paced, vivid depiction of Highland life, as alliances were forged and boundaries tested.
The heroine Anna is the heart o..Show More »f the story and is very warm, strong willed and full of love.
I love the interaction between each of the characters as they pull the reader/listener in, to share in the warmth and passion of each exchange.
The characters and the story lines are all fully developed and presented realistically without drawing the situation out unnecessarily.
The males in the story despite being forceful and strong are not averse to showing there softer reasonable side if the situation warrants it.
The narrator is excellent in his distinct and consistent depiction of each character. You were never reminded that he is reading a story. The tenor of each conversation reflected the emotion and character of the Highland individual being portrayed.
I believe the story was made even richer with a double "epilogue". I was pleased to have that added insight and have all loose ends secured.
It was a beautiful story of love and care to escape into and I loved every minuet of it.
