Bestselling author Jennifer Roberson captures readers’ hearts and imaginations in this haunting, lyrical tale of an era of savagery and splendor, set against the heather-strewn hills of a divided Scotland. . .

From birth, Catriona Campbell and Alasdair Og MacDonald are enemies—for he is the second son of her clan’s most powerful foe. Yet from the moment they meet, they know they will lie in each other’s arms someday. But their love, for centuries forbidden, comes at the most dangerous of times, as they become pawns of war…and of history.

MY THOUGHTS:

LADY OF THE GLEN by Jennifer Roberson is an interesting medieval Scottish Historical Fiction set in 1685 Scotland. For a romp through 17th century Scotland you must read “Lady of the Glen”. It is riveting tale of treachery, betrayal,savagery and a splendor set against a Scotland background. Catriona Campbell and Alasdair Og MacDonald know they are destined to be together although,their clans are enemies, but can their love outlast the times? They are used as pawns of war,during the dangerous times between England and Scotland, will their love survive? Please be aware as with most Highland stories, the language is unique to them, if you don’t read many Scottish stories, it can be a bit confusing, but “Lady of the Glen” is an enjoyable read and one not to miss. Very emotional, yet a very satisfying read! I enjoyed Dair and Cat’s story and learning more on the Massacre of Glencoe on February 13, 1692. I love Scottish tales and “Lady of the Glen” is a unique tale of love, sacrifice, betrayal and the struggle to survive during the 17th century in a country England wants badly enough to murder the innocent  and guilty alike,every Scot under the age of seventy was to be murdered.  What a tale! Well written with engaging characters and an intriguing storyline. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
