3.5Nicely written Scottish romance that focuses on the harsh reality of life during Jacobite Rebellion. The choices and hardships of the people left to fight and survive after the death or desertion by their leaders. The hero, Garrett is truly heroic and the heroine, Maddie is brave, but blinded by her own prejudice. Garrett is blinded by his feelings for her and fails to see what is going on right in front of him, and thus he seems a bit slow. Honestly, Garrett is so patient and wise that Maddie comes across as a bit of an idiot at one point. Yet, her redemption and reconciliation of our star-crossed lovers makes for a sweet ending.
