Katherine's choices are slim ... the convent or marriage to a stranger ... thankfully for the listener she chooses Niall (the hot highlander). Unfortunately he has vowed never to marry!
The narrative packs a lot of heart into a beautiful story. It was an emotional journey from the moment Katherine had to give up her beloved horse Stormy to the very end.
I originally read the eBook, but once I discovered it on audible I had to experience it again. The narrator is very pleasant, and he brings each character to life in a unique way.
A must listen for any fan of Highland Romance!
