This series of books is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed each book and encourage readers who enjoy time travel to partake of a story full to the brim with romance,intrigue,sadness at times and the political atmosphere of the 17th. Century. In addition to all of this it had a wonderful ending. What more could you ask for !!

As the sole survivor of the car crash that killed her parents, grief-stricken paramedic Kit MacKlenna is stunned to learn her life is built on lies. A legacy from her father includes a faded letter and a well-worn journal. The journal reveals she was abandoned as a baby 160 years ago. The only clues to her identity are a blood-splattered shawl, a locket with the portrait of a 19th century man, and a Celtic brooch with magical powers.
