More About This Book

Overview

Catrìona Robertson has what 18th century Scottish Highlanders call Second Sight. It's not all that rare, but in her family it's been fatal. After having a vision of her brother's life-changing accident at the Games at Blair Castle, then having it played out in front of her, her family starts to believe in her powers. Cat needs to find a way to harness her "gift" and heal her mother's debilitating disease, but fate seems to have something else in store.
When the Pretender to the Scottish throne, the Jacobite Prince Charles, decides to seize his rightful place from the Hanoverian King George, her powers are put to the ultimate test. Cat becomes an unwilling liaison between her clan Chief and the Prince, foretelling the outcome of each battle of the Rising of 1745.
Though warned of the outcome of their participation in the fight, her father and brothers are drawn in as if by malevolent forces. Unwilling to let her visions of death come to fruition, Cat does everything in her power to keep them out of harms way, finding herself thrust into the very heart of what she fears the most.

    Eyes of Garnet is a true gem!

    This is Mary Duncan's first novel. It's one of those gems that often gets buried in the slush pile, simply because she made the conscious decision NOT to let her creativity be stifled by conforming to what is 'commercially viable' in the literary world. That is such a shame. This is a book that I didn't put down until I had finished it. It is certainly hard to put into a genre. Historical, YES paranormal, somewhat romance, NO. It has been shelved by book stores in the literary section. This is the story of Catriona Robertson, a young girl growing up in a very turbulent 18th century Scotland. She has the gift of second sight (can see into the future) and learns the art of healing. It becomes a gift (trying to help her ill mother) and a curse (seeing the death of those she loves). I must tell you first off, that this is only the first in many more to come (fingers crossed here) in a series of books following Cat's life. Mary Duncan is a wonderful story teller, and her use of the Scottish vernacular is not only colorful, but it truly makes you able to 'hear' her characters loud and clear as you read this often tragic tale of events leading up to the battle at Culloden and the subsequent Scottish clearings. Mary also uses quite a bit of Gaidhlig (Gaelic), and has a glossary in the back, instead of working in the translation after the character says it, like so many writers do. This is an extremely well researched, well written novel that I hope one day to see picked up by a large publisher.

    The reader is taken to 18th century tumultuous Scotland and becomes a part of history in Duncan's wonderful story.

    Mary Duncan's well researched novel gives the reader an opportunity to see the past turmoils of Scotland through the eyes of young Catriona, a Scottish lass with the 'Sight'. A gripping read!

    Learn Some Scottish History

    My husband is a Robertson. I thought I would read this book to get a lttle education. I realize it is fiction but the story could be true. The research done by the the author is outstanding. I truly enjoyed the way the author wrote how the people really spoke back then. It reminded me of Zora Hurstons classic, Their Eyes were watching God. This may become a classic too.

    The eyes have: a great read

    The sight: a gift or a curse. But what ever it is Cat has it and it makes for interesting, realistic experiences in 18th century Scotland. The reader is filled with anticipation as to what will be the next forecasted event and how will be it fulfilled. And the drama is set for for her next eadventure across the ocean. Anticipate it.

    This is a book that is for anyone 12 and up

    This book is wonderfully written. You can tell the author put a LOT of time researching the historical facts and making them relevant to the storyline. A very easy read book. Even with some of the Gaelic terms it is very understandable. The glossary helps as well. My 13-year-old daughter is reading it for the 2nd time, and absolutely loves it. We both cannot wait until the sequel comes out.

    A New Author for those who Love Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.

    Eyes of Garnet is a riveting tale of love, loss, humor, and strentgh of the human spirit. Mary's use of the Scots language as spoken in the 18th century, and her characters, make for a believable journey for the reader. The historical references are given in subtle ways, just enough so you feel the story is real. Mary Duncan is a new author with great potential.
