Publisher's Summary

Spring has been raised as a warrior, not knowing she's been stolen as a baby by Cromwell Gunn. When her clan decides to launch a plan to seize their enemy's castle, she has no choice to go along with it. Shaw Gordon is laird and chieftain and also a widower with three children. He is looking for a wife. But he never expects the offer of his worst enemy's daughter in the form of an alliance. He doesn't trust them, but when he sees the girl with his late father's bow and arrows in her hand, he will do anything to get it back - even marry the enemy. Can Spring find the strength to continue, and draw on the strength of her new husband as well when she discovers her entire life is based on a horrific lie?

    "A Woman of Strength, a Man of Understanding"
    Any additional comments?

    A man who wishes to love again, to provide a woman’s love to his children. A woman, trained as a warrior, not knowing how to love. Brought together to wed -- an alliance of two clans. Both clans has issues of acceptance. Will peace take hold?

    Spring has always been calmed by rubbing her talisman, a small wooden piece, knawed on as a child, and had since forever. Her father, part of the Gunn clan hardened her soul, making her one of his best warriors. She is an expert with a bow and arrow she found on a dead man, when only ten years old. Her life has been harsh, but she loves her two brothers. Her father has always said she and they were triplets, but his statement has always been speculative.

    Now Spring is a pawn to capture her father’s enemy, the Gordon clan, to allow him access to take the keep. She’s been married to this man, a man who has three children. Changes occur. Spring softens. Love claims her. How can she betray her new family? How can she betray the family she’s had for 18 years? Is it possible she can keep them both safe?

    I enjoyed the story with a definite edginess to it. Spring is put into a perilous situation. Her emotions and understanding of who she is develop the story and propel the plot forward. Love is a powerful force both Spring and Shaw Gordon yearn to experience.

    A secondary character I gravitated to was the old woman who is a seer and has been with Shaw for as long as he remembers. She sees the present with several visions. She sees Summer is to go through several years of turmoil at the end of this story. She wishes to be with her and so Shaw gives his blessing to have her join Summer. (Secretly, he's happy to see her go. She sees more than he’s comfortable with.)

    I enjoyed the way Spring finds herself, her inner strength even in times of uncertainty. She desire to be accepted by Shaw's children, for she's never truly felt she belonged anywhere.
    Narrator Brian J. Gill is an excellent narrator, particularly when it comes to a Highland story. His deep voice and accented dialog make the story even more enjoyable.

    "Highland Spring"

    Awesome fast paced story with unexpected possibilities involving future and past events. I like that the strong well developed characters were an extension of the previous trilogy. Brian J. Gill gives an excellent, 5 star performance as the audible narrator. His talent gave life to all the characters with his accurate and believable pronunciations and regional accents and voices for the varied characters. I have really enjoyed all of the boo k s in these connected series very much. Not only has Elizabeth Rose given us another amazing adventure, but Brian J. Gill gives an amazing audible performance. They really seem to make a excellent, coordinated team, to bring us an enjoyable listening experience.

    "Fantastic Story!"

    This one kept my interest at the very beginning. Spring was a very strong woman and I loved her. Great job Elizabeth and Brian.

    "great story with a strong women character "
    If you could sum up Highland Spring in three words, what would they be?

    I won a copy of thisy. As soon as i got it downloaded i started listening to it and I couldn't stop until I was done. Spring is a women that is a true warrior and she learns that love can come when we are not looking for it and that true family excepts us for who we are. I loved this story and think that it had everything in it that made the story great. Love, hate, betrayal, family, hope and of course fighting for honor of family. If anyone is looking for a great book to get this one is a must read. Great Job Elizabeth Rose - Author I look forward to reading more
