As a fellow Medieval author who keeps hearing that this time period is a hard sell in Christian fiction, I am thrilled this book made it safely to print. Highland Blessings is set in 1473, which is a little late in history for a medieval novel, but all of the cultural elements we associate with the Middle Ages, stone castles, armor, flying pennants, are still firmly in place in Scotland during this time. Add to that plaids, clan lairds and feuds, and the stage is set for an exciting story similar to those written by CBA author Kathleen Morgan.

While I felt this story had some small technical issues, overall I enjoyed it very much. My favorite element of the book was the spiritual aspect. Akira is truly a woman of God to be admired. She puts aside hurt and unforgiveness in order to submit herself to God's plan. In addition, she is open to the spirit of God and known for her prophetic dreams. She speaks them forth boldly despite the danger of being thought a witch in her superstitious culture.

Here's to hoping this novel will start a new wave of Medievals. It's time the market took notice of this exciting and underrepresented time in history.

A pleasant surprise!

This was another freebie. It is written from a Christian standpoint, but it can be enjoyed by anyone. The characters and plot were great!

    Author is a child? Maybe?





    This book was poorly written, unrealistic (character emotion and actionwise), and a disappointment. I tried several times to come back and finish reading it, but it was juvenile and lacked any real Christianity. The author needs to grow up and let her characters develop into believable people, not just imagination puppets who do things that don't make sense while glancing around to notice "others watching". Even though the book was free I was completely disappointed in the lack of everthing. From faith, to plot originality, to character development and names, so sad. Akira is a japanese name for a boy, not a scottish one for a girl. Please, author, work harder.
