Publisher's Summary

Though Magnus MacLeish and Lark MacDougall grew up on the same castle grounds, Magnus is now laird of the great house and the Isle of Kerrera. Lark is but the keeper of his bees and the woman he is hoping will provide a tincture that might help his ailing wife conceive and bear him an heir. But when his wife dies suddenly, Magnus and Lark find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of accusations, expelled from their beloved island, and sold as indentured servants across the Atlantic. 

Yet even when all hope seems dashed against the rocky coastline of the Virginia colony, it may be that in this New World, the two of them could make a new beginning - together.

Laura Frantz's prose sparkles with authenticity and deep feeling as she digs into her own family history to share this breathless tale of love, exile, and courage in Colonial America.

Good story until the end!

The ending seemed rushed. Also, every other sentence was a prayer or blessing of some sort. I am not exaggerating and while I don’t usually mind, this was too much for a book that I wanted to lose myself in.

Am I missing chapters??

Everybody that knows me knows that I love books by Laura Frantz. Her books have a wonderful mix of faith, history with a sweet love story. I especially love listening to her books because she always has wonderful narrators who add dimension to her stories. This book, I have to admit, left me baffled. The beginning and middle had me engaged and thoroughly enjoying the story. It weaved a lovely tale filled with Scottish and Virginia history and an endearing love story that was built on faith. 🙏

Sadly, the ending was abrupt. It was the oddest thing! You should have seen me.....I was listening on my Ipod....It ended and I actually went to the download to double check because I thought it was missing chapters. I couldn't believe it. It just ended! (Like someone just thru cold water in my face!). Did you ever have a wonderful dream that took you on a great journey......then you abruptly wake up only to be mad because the dream didn't finish? Well, that is what I felt with this book! 😭

Ms. Frantz, I hope this book is the beginning of a series because you can't leave it like this!! This story deserves more. Your readers deserve more. I need to wake up from my dream satisfied!! Please!! 😃

Excellent, very well written!

I enjoy the whole book from beginning to end including the narrator. It will be nice to turn this book into a series.

Outstanding Story and Narration

I’ve enjoyed many of Laura Frantz’s books, but this one tops them all. The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life for us. Well done!
