Summary

Walter Scott has three passions: Scotland, poetry, and Mina Stuart. Though she is young and they are from different stations in society, Walter is certain their love is meant to be. For years he has courted her through love letters. She is the sunshine of his soul.

Though Mina shares Walter's love of literature and passionate temperament, it's hard for her to know if she truly loves him or if she has only been dazzled by his flattery. When she meets the handsome and charming William Forbes, her heart is challenged. Who will she choose? But as every poet knows, "the course of true love never did run smooth", and on a windy morning in the lake country, Walter meets Charlotte. At 26, Charlotte Carpenter believes she will never find love. After all, she is a Catholic-born Frenchwoman living in London with a family history shadowed by scandal. Though quiet, practical, and determined to live a life of independence, her heart longs for someone to love her and a place to call home. Passion and promises collide as Walter, Mina, and Charlotte must each decide the course for their futures. What are they each willing to risk to find love and be loved in return?

It's a must read or listen on audible!

The best thing about the book is that the person reading it sounds like they are a male Scottish Man which just draws you more into the book. I'm terminally ill & my doctor has me listen to books before I go to sleep to trick my brain to focus on listening rather than focusing on the pain. Well every other book has work & I MEAN A LOT OF BOOKS!!! Have worked but the second this book started I found myself listening to the book. The next thing I new it was 4hrs later. I couldn't fall asleep to the book because it was that good! It was so good I got a first edition of The Lady Of The Lakes By: Sir Walter Scott for my son. Just so you know it's a completely different book. This book was made in 2017 the Sir Walter Scott book was from 1810. I highly recommend this book but just make sure your ready to get another book that has to do with Sir Walter Scott because like I said it pulls you in wanting more. 😁
I hope you enjoy it as much as me. That has now listened to it three times now.
Enjoy love & everything it may bring you,
Michelle

Absolutely magnificent

The author writes with exceptional skill and beauty. The story is beautifully told and fully maintained my interest from beginning to end. It is a simple story but told with sensitivity and clarity.

I can not say enough good things about this book.
