On their honeymoon in the Scottish Highlands, she can scarcely believe that the four previous lonely years can have been replaced by so much joy. But her unclouded happiness does not last long. The return to Edinburgh brings her into conflict with her old school friend, Alec’s sister Zilla. A beautiful woman who had expected Alec to remain a lifelong companion, devoted only to her.

Then the jealousies and greed of her first husband’s family threaten to bring unhappiness to her stepson Simon, who has new responsibilites as the heir to the great English estate of Limbourne…

Another delightful holiday in Scotland

Lesley Mackie has added her gentle Scots accent to another of D. E. Stevenson's delightful novels set mainly in Scotland. This story, of The Marriage Of Katherine (the U.S. title for this novel) lets the modern listener travel to Scotland and camp by a lovely loch, shop in Edinburgh and visit its famous "Castle", and experience the joys and sorrows of newly married life. Like all of D. E. Stevenson's novels, this book is a pleasure to listen to, and Lesley Mackie helps it along.

I can only hope that soon we will get audio versions of the two books that come before this. Katherine's Marriage is a direct sequel to Katherine Wentworth, starting just a few days/weeks after the end of that book so I hope that plans to produce an audiobook version of Katherine Wentworth are in the works. Katherine's Marriage also makes reference to an early novel by D. E. Stevenson, Smouldering Fire, with overlaping characters and locations, and an audiobook version of that early novel would by wonderful as well.

Must Read Sequal to Katherines Marriage

Another beautiful story with a great narrator. Anything By this author is well worth getting.
I have read ALL of D.E. Stevenson's books over the past 50 years .Many several times
over,and I have to say" Listening "to them adds to the pleasure of the experience.
If you like good old fashioned writing that does not depend on sex and violence to carry the story then try any thing by this author. I would LOVE to see more titles added to the list of choices from Audible.

A sweet romance

D E Stevenson is the master of the simple but charming story, with every-day characters and happy endings. She is my go-to author for frazzled days. Katherine's Marriage has many lively moments, likable people, the dreadful Zelda, and deals with a modern problem - the blended family. The narration is excellent.
