Gideon knows nothing of women but suddenly finds himself with a wife, a family, and a country to protect.
Can Gideon and Ailene’s new-found love survive the horror of the Scottish War of Independence — only time will tell.
Oh. My. Days…! I would like to call Highland Light a romance, but it is so much more than that. It is an epic story about innocent young love, set in the backdrop of war. MacFarlane did a staggering job of bringing 14th Century Scotland back to life, and her attention to detail must be commended. A thoroughly well researched and breath-taking read.
MacFarlane gives her readers just the right amount of detail. Whether that be with regards to the love making scenes— in this case, less is certainly more — and the battle scenes, which gives her readers a sense of what it must have been like in the heat of battle, but without going overboard with the detail.
This is a truly addictive read — once you start you are so not going to want to stop. I couldn’t wait to get back to the book every evening to find out what was going to happen next.
Do I Recommend? You bet ya! A fantastic 5*
