Overview

In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1564, superstitions threaten a truce . . . a traitor plans his attack . . . and a new love is born.

An arranged betrothal was never the course Anne MacGregor imagined her life would take. Yet when her father explains that her cooperation is the only way to bring about the long-sought truce between feuding families, Anne has no other choice.

A simple ceremony pledging Anne's hand in marriage after one year of commitment is the only seal to the promise of peace. But when the arrangement requires the reluctant Anne to follow Niall Campbell back to his home, she soon discovers that peace is not so easily achieved. Before they even arrive, rumors about her abound, and her safety is threatened. Meanwhile, Niall's ascension as leader of his clan is in jeopardy, as a traitor works to bring about his downfall.

As Niall and Anne begin to see beyond each other's defenses, love takes them by surprise. But will it be enough to defeat their foes? Or will the truce be broken, their lives forfeit, and war return to their beloved land?

    A Thrilling tale of love and betrayal, set in the Highlands of Scotland

    This is a fantastic, engrossing story of a young healer, Anne MacGregor, and a dark, tormented hero, Niall Campbell, who are forced together in an unlikely alliance to bring peace to their two feuding clans. Anne, however, is unjustly thought a witch by some and doesn't find life in Niall's home overly welcoming. And, as if an unwanted fiance isn't enough of a problem, Niall soon finds his own life in jeopardy when he assumes leadership of his clan. Fanatics, traitors, and those who pursue their own ambitions over what is right and good add to the ever rising suspense. I couldn't put this book down, and can't wait for it's sequel. Bravo, Kathleen Morgan! You've a winner with this one!

    highlander with a twist

    this is a highlander with a who done it twist. i very much like the story and characters but beware of a lot of religious undertones to the story. if you like a clean highlander love story without sex then this is for you.

    Child of the Mist

    This book is definitely worth buying! From the start, Child of the Mist captivated me and kept me reading. The plot kept me guessing, the characters were interesting, and it was well-written. The whole book was spellbinding!

    Anne is a MacGregor and Niall is a Campbell. Their families have fought for years and finally a truce is formed: Anne will go to live with Niall for one year and at the end of that year they will marry. Both Anne and Niall are stubborn and even though they don't want to, they gradually fall in love.

    There are complications, however. Niall suspects that there is a traitor in his tribe, and he must protect his back everywhere he goes. Anne won't give up her practice of healing, and many accuse her of beings a witch.

    Will Niall and Anne be able to overcome all of the obstacles or will their love fail?

    Terrific read

    Honestly I haven't read a book this quickly in years! I just wanted to keep reading once i was 10 or 15 pages in. I really appreciated the way the author recognized a relationship with God in the book, instead of the general idea of religion. Suggest to anyone who likes a mixture of intrigue, romance, and emotion!

    an amazing book!

    This has to be my favorite book of all time. The way the main characters interact and respond to one another is captivating. The plot keeps you guessing the whole way and it is so easy to come to love these characters. The two following books in the series are just as good.

    A Great Historical Christian Romance

    As far as historical fiction goes, I am a huge fan, and this book did not disappoint. The characters were very compelling, and the storyline moved quickly. Overall, I would recommend this book to readers who like historical romance without all the sex. Very tasteful and a delightful read!

    A GREAT CHRISTIAN READ

    One of the best free books I have read. Anne's role as a godly woman in a pagan land was well written and though her life in such hard times seemed different than ours, it really is a mirror of a present age Christian life. We try to bring the "good Word" (i.e. her herbs) to people in a land we have chosen to be separated from, we are called names. If only all would just listen with an open heart, the real truth will come forth. There is a healing thru God's word and a new life after the cleansing, healing works of His words. Also a new place has been prepared for us when this life is over. The follow up book to this one should be The Bible. Also available for purchase on the nook.

    It was okay

    I enjoyed the story, but felt it lacked depth. I would of liked to have seen more information on the traitor and plot. The rwriting was good but not enough meat.

    Really enjoyed the lack of expliced sex

    Not so great...

    This book started out pretty strong but then slowed down and got really boring. I didn't even finish it. Considering it was free, I guess I can't complain.

    It was so cheesy i could barely get through the first few chapters, and i read like 24/7 and absolutely adore good literature. I was so excited to read thus because i love celtic mythology history etc, but this was a huge dissapointment!

    Why cant anybody write a story with a love story in it either as a side plot or the real plot, without it being a lucid sex scene or incredibly cheesy?

    Good read

    Written on what I would estimate to be an 8th grade level, it's simplistic and predictable but it's a good read if you enjoy free books.

    Good read

    Good romance. Nothing explicit just good old fashion historical romance. But the story is compelling and I just had to see what happened in the end. Can't wait to see what else she writes.

    ok story

    Drawn out a little more than it needed to be. More religous references than I think the story warranted. I much prefer Diana Gabaldon's novels.

    Great Tale

    Having read all of Diana Gabaldon's books about Scotland, I read this bood and really enjoyed a similar kind of reading experience. Its not as full of detail as Gabaldon puts in her books, but that is a good thing. I usually will not read books with religious overtones, but this one was done with restraint on that score, except for the ending. If you are looking for a nice clean read with lots of romance, this is a good one.

    Engaging read

    This book was an interesting experience for me. Generally I find myself disappointed with "Christian" fiction. This author did a wonderful job of pulling me in and via her characters posing great questions about how to best follow the Lord in circumstances that mean doing so could cost your life. Or worse that of another. Read it cover to cover without a break and will definitely be seeking out other books in the series.

    Well worth a read.
