Summary

From the wild shores of the Scotland's Western Isles to the bloody fields of France to the glittering courts of Europe, the Macpherson Trilogy follows a family's fight for Scottish independence against the Tudor king, Henry VIII.

Nothing could hide her passion...

Fiona does not remember the years before she came to the priory on the Isle of Skye. Only the gentle Prioress knows the truth about the spirited, red-haired lass's true birth. So it is in a simple cowl and peasant's dress that she emerges from the island's mists and faces the famed warrior chief of the Highlands, Alec Macpherson.

Or stop his love...

Alec has served King James with his sword. Now he would give his very soul to protect this beautiful girl from the intrigue that swirls around her. But Fiona wants his heart as well, and willingly he gives it...even as the king's opponents are pushing her toward a deadly trap. For hidden in Fiona's memory is the face of her mother's killer and a secret that could topple the throne. And it will take Alec's Highland strengths pitted against a foe's cruel ambitions to prove, through blood and battle, which will reign-an army's might or the powerful passions of two lovers.

Strange

I found this story and narration very strange. The story was immature and fairytale-like. The narrator only added to the situation by reading the characters voices in a very monosyllabic way. I found the characters to actual be more like caricatures, very over the top and unbelievable. I recommend skipping this book.

Overall a good story

I feel like this book was very enjoyable for the first half and then lost a little momentum once the identity of the heroine’s father was revealed … but overall it was a worthwhile listen and I would recommend it!

Whose daughter I

Angel of Skye is an excellent historical tomanggwith a lot of actual fact and legend. I enjoyed Fiona as a strong Scottish Lass. She showed a few signs of uncertainty and self doubt, but none of the stupidity I've come across frequently in similar novels. ... more so in those set in the Regency era. Alec was the perfect Laird with scruples and values he gained with maturity. The tale was well developed with surprises, twists and turns.
Ruth Urquhart does an excellent Scottish brogue (male and female). Well done.

Well worth the Credit

It was a fast paced book full of intrigue. A lost girl finding her roots with the help of her love. The narrator was good and delivered. Love those Scottish romance books
