Summary

When best-selling author Carrie McClelland visits the windswept ruins of Slains Castle, she is enchanted by the stark and beautiful Scottish landscape. The area is strangely familiar to her but she puts aside her faint sense of unease to begin her new novel, using the castle as her setting, and one of her own ancestors, Sophia, as her heroine.

Then Carrie realizes her writing is taking on a life of its own and the lines between fact and fiction become increasingly blurred. As Sophia's memories draw Carrie more deeply into the intrigue of 1708, she discovers a captivating love story lost in time.

After 300 years, 'Sophia's Secret' must be told.

The winter sea

I have not read any of Susanna Kearsleys’s books before. This book The winter sea was absolutely remarkable and I loved it.
It reminded me of the history and amazement of Diana Gabaldons Outlander series and also of Elizabeth Erskines Lady of Hay in parts.
The reader, Rosalyn Landon, was as usual at her best ( she is my favourite narrator) and her voices contributed exceptionally well with the story!
This book is without doubt going to be in my top ten books.
If you like reading historic novels with a romance woven into the story line
Then this book is for you.
I thoroughly recommend it!!
I shall be looking for more books written by this author.

Stunning and Beautiful

a beautifully written historical love story, heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. I did not want it to end and now it has i doubt I will find anything as good again. Narrated in a style that was so easy to listen to and compelled you to fall in love with the characters. I was transported to a different time.

Awful Narration

I sent this book back and read it on kindle instead. Great book, terrible narration.

wonderful- lost myself in the past

As with all her books this is wonderful. My second favourite after Marianna. Her heroine and hero are well developed.
