Summary

Isla Findlay belongs nowhere. The daughter of a disgraced woman and the Highlander who abandoned them both, she tries to be a dutiful niece to the uncle who has taken her in, blending into the Lowland village of Craigmuir as best she can. But when a young Highlander's arrival in the area coincides with an outbreak of dreaded smallpox, it stirs up questions about Isla's past and forces her to confront her feelings that run counter to those accepted in her community. 

Doctor Graeme MacNeill killed the only patient he ever had: his own father. The only way he can think to atone is to cut all ties from the Lowland world his father hated - including his education as a physician - and embrace the Highland heritage he used to deplore. He travels to Craigmuir to sell the unwanted estate he has inherited from an uncle and return home, but fate - and the redheaded young woman he encounters in the village - have no intention of letting him leave things so easily behind.

The book I didn’t know I needed

What an awesome story of love and redemption. I enjoyed the Scottish accent and voice of the narrator.

A Perfect Title

While this story carried some very heavy themes of a real life situation that existed in the 18th century, it was so well written that my heart and mind were totally invested from beginning to end. It is not that often that I can honestly say that I "love" both lead characters equally but this is certainly true with Graeme and Isla. (I also felt that there names, for some reason, fit them each perfectly.) I felt a sense of kinship with them and the situations that were forced to confront. From my perspective, they were a perfect match in every way. This was a unique story, even for Martha Keyes. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of her books but this one just had more 'meat' and 'heart' to it. I also love stories set in Scotland or Ireland, so this truly hit all the high marks for me. There was indeed heartache but there was also great fulfillment and a beautiful ending. I would love to hear more of Graeme and Isla but if this is the last I hear of their story, I can smile and imagine them living beautiful and fulfilling lives in another time.

There was also an extremely well-done audible version to the story that I also loved. 5 stars all around.
