Publisher's Summary

Eleven years later, FitzSimon is a broken man. He is forsaken, alone, a wretch left to wallow in his grief. A scrooge to rival Ebenezer, he is visited by the ghost of his dead wife, who has come to reveal what life has been, what it could be, and where it will end if the candle burns out before FitzSimon has made amends.

Meantime, in the Highlands, the MacKinnon clan faces their darkest hour. Their village destroyed by fire, with with winter on the way, how can they rally when whispers of war have now begun? Malcolm MacKinnon, at 17, is ready to fight, but he most prove himself a man before he can wield his sword and join the Highland Guard. A very unexpected "ghost" may yet help him find his way.

For years fans have asked for a MacKinnon's Bride epilogue and here it is, a short story to lend a little cheer for the holidays.

loved it

It is a good story that has so many twists, and we get to revisit characters form the series, but what I was most happy about is that Page got her closure with her Father, Hugh FitzSimon, who gets a chance at redemption (not that he deserved it IMO). Ian's son, Malcolm MacKinnon is all grown up and troubled that his premonition is not believed. Quite a lot is happening in this short book, so I would suggest to read/listen to "The MacKinnon's Bride", Book 1 of the Highland Brides series before listening to this.
Braden Wright delivered another great listening experience, his voice is perfect for the story. I could listen to him for hours on end.

Thoroughly enjoyed

This was pretty short, and that's OK. But I do wish there was more, especially more about Malcolm.
