In the aftermath of Culloden, Colin Anderson, a Highlander by birth, finds himself torn between his late father’s allegiance to the Crown and the cause of the Jacobites, his clansmen. Due to his father’s choices, Colin is still laird of his castle, but at what cost? Beth Pratt never suspected when she joined a bus tour of Highlands in the twenty-first century that she would find herself catapulted through time to the eighteenth century. She never imagined she too would find herself caught up in the conflict that irrevocably ended the Highlander way of life. But when the laird makes a fateful decision that threatens to destroy everything he holds dear, can Beth save him in time?
Five Boundless Stars
I fell in love with this book when I saw the title and the cover. The story just made me fall in love more. Beth is visiting Scotland on a bus tour when a quick visit to a stream lands her in 1746. Unaware of the year she is rescued from a storm by Colin Anderson, a born Highlander. She comes to know the truth and without a way home she is left in the care of Colin. She quickly falls in love. From British soldiers to Jacobite rebellions, this book has it all. Through it all they still manage to find a love of a lifetime. Both hers and his. I have read many books by Bess McBride, but this has been favorite series yet. I love Scottish books and anything to do with Highlanders. The time travel adds to an already great book. I loved the characters and the history. This story painted a great picture of life in the Highlands. I can not wait to read more books in this series.
