A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

"I've loved every one of Susanna's books! She has bedrock research and a butterfly's delicate touch with characters - sure recipe for historical fiction that sucks you in and won't let go!" - DIANA GABALDON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Outlander

A hauntingly beautiful tale of love that transcends time. A modern American woman travels to Scotland to write a novel about the Jacobite Rebellion - only to discover that the vivid scenes and the romantic hero she's imagining actually exist...

In the spring of 1708, invading Jacobites plot to land the exiled James Stewart on the Scottish coast to reclaim his crown. When young Sophia Paterson travels to Slains Castle by the sea, she finds herself in the midst of the dangerous intrigue.

Now, American writer Carrie McClelland hopes to base her next bestselling novel on that story of her ancestors in the dim, dark past . Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she starts to write.
But as Carrie's mind slips back in time, she learns of the ultimate betrayal

that happened all those years ago, making her the only living person who knows the truth - and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her.
