Strangely, I thought I would take time to read this book but found I raced through it as I was drawn into the tale. Needless to say I liked the echoes of my homeland in this novel and the way that known historic facts were woven together to create an entrancing tale in the past whilst the modern story racing above piercing the veils of time was enthralling.

Cover blurb
"Clare Royland appears to have it all, but her marriage is a lonely one, strained further by husband Paul's financial cares. She is haunted too by a strange, growing fascination with an ancestress from the distant past, which fuels her feelings of isolation. Troubled by inexplicable dreams that terrify - but also powerfully compel - Clare is forced to look back through th centuries for an answer.
In 1306, Scotland is at war. Isobel, Countess of Buchan, faces fear and the prospect of untimely death as the fightng surrounds her. Passionate and headstrong, her trials escalate when she is persecuted for her part in crowning Robert the Bruce, her lover.
Duncairn, Isobel's home and Clare's beloved heritage, becomes a battleground for passions that span the centuries. As Paul's recklessness threatens their security, Clare must fight to save Duncairn, and to save herself from the powers of Isobel..."
