FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Katie is shocked when she gets a call from Scotland when a man passes who claims to be her grandfather. He leaves her everything. She goes to Scotland to deal with the Will and while there she begins to unravel long buried secrets. Who was this man and why did he leave her everything? While finding out the truth of her grandfather she also unlocks secrets to the castles late inhabitants. While in Scotland, she not only finds out the truth to her identity and that of her ancestors, but also a love she never hoped to find. I have become a bit of a junkie of Irina Shapiro's novels. Each book I read leads me to another and then another. They are so good. From beginning to end I just fall in love. The history and characters are well written and well thought out. They are colorful and dark and real. This book held a great mystery and a great love. From modern day times to the times of way back. They tell a haunting tale of hope, love, death, betrayal, and sacrifice. This book was a great one.
