Publisher's summary

Everything happens in its time.

For Jeffrey Oakes, life in the seventeenth century hasn't been the thrilling change of pace he hoped it would be. The lack of power tools, better hygiene, and cold beer has him yearning for the luxuries of his modern-day life. It might all be bearable if he had someone to maneuver the cultural differences and minimal conveniences with-someone with whom he could make a life. But among the Scottish countryside, with women so different from himself, he knows his chances of finding such a woman are small. If only Morna could work her magic for him like she has done for so many others.

Kathleen Carter's life is changing. With enough money now saved to fulfill her dream of restoring the castle she inherited, her job as housemaid is coming to an end. All she wants now is for moving day to arrive so that she can get to Scotland. She knows she'll have no time for much of a personal life for the next few years, but that's okay. The ruined castle will take all of the love and attention she has to give. Or so she thinks. Little does she know that a move isn't the only big change life has in store for her and that perhaps her dreams might include more than devoting her life to a big, empty castle.

a novella in the legacy

Jeffrey and Kathleen meet when he brings Cooper yo see Cooper's present day family. This, as a result of his living in 1647 leads to misunderstandings and when she goes to Scotland she meets up with him again but under different circumstances.
A good addition to the collection that helps build the story line more.

Do Jeffrey and Kathleen find happiness in the 1700 century?

Short sweet story to find Cooper's dad Jeffrey a wife. Cooper and Morna put their heads together to set his dad up with the perfect mate. Although smitten, Jeffrey keeps Kathleen at arms length because he feels he can't tell more people about time travel. When Kathleen and Cooper's aunt Jane travel to Scotland, Morna concots a plan to send the two women back in time where Cooper and Jeffrey are. Jane freaks, but Kathleen is more accepting.

Enjoyed this novella very much.

Good story. Slow start, but worth finishing. I really liked it was primarily from a male perspective. I like the characters and using a child as a common starting point between all the relationships. It had a good logical flow. Made me wonder if there was a book prior.

Addicted to this series

I can never get enough of the Morna's Legacy series. I thoroughly enjoyed this novella just as much as the other books in this series. Cooper is quite the rascal, isn't he? He made the book really fun for me. Of course, It was wonderful seeing Jeffrey and Kathleen fall in love.
