    2. Love this book so much that I read it once a year. Reay Tannahill's capture of the droll Scottish wit is unsurpassed, although Diana Gabaldon runs close these days (and it was to Tannahill that Gabaldon sent her first Outlander novel for pre-publication comment). I so wished this had been part of a whole medieval series.

    3. A Lovely, historical romance, set in wild Scotland. Really enjoyed it perfect read for a long winters afternoon.

    4. Purchased at The Bookery in Placerville, CA June 29, 2013. Nice little haul from this pleasantly busy bookstore, had to narrow down our selections since we didn't want to overload our luggage :-(
