  • Heather Macaulay

    The Winter Sea (The Slains #1) by Susanna Kearsley. Pinner writes: "A wonderful historical fiction set in Scotland. Her writing compares to Mary Stewart, Daphne du Maurier & Diana Gabaldon. If you love historical fiction, Scotland & the 'espionage' between the Unionists & the Jacobites in the early 1700's, you will not be disappointed. Kearsley's obvious love of history is infectious. Beautifully versed, it captures the notion of time travel in a fresh, compelling way."
