Overview

A boy with dreams of adventure…a girl with a traumatic past…and a prince determined to take a throne…

Ailean MacLachlainn, the son of a poor crofter in Scotland’s highlands, wants a life of adventure. He often daydreams of being a respected warrior of his clan. And he battles rival Latharn Cambeul in the game of camanachd…and wins. But Ailean meets a girl, and a shy smile and a glance from Mùirne's blue eyes turns his head. He wins her love, and his rivalry with Latharn is no longer a game with a camanachd stick, now they fight with swords.

Ailean gets his wish to become a warrior when Bonnie Prince Charlie comes to raise a Highland army in the attempt to retake his father’s throne. Ailean’s clan chief involves his clan in the uprising, and sets Ailean on a course toward a destiny he could never have foreseen.

What happens when a man’s dreams turn to dust? And when a man loses everything, does he have what it takes to go on?

HIGH ON A MOUNTAIN is the stirring tale of one man’s remarkable journey through life. A story of adventure and love…of faith, loss, and redemption.

She carries on the tradition of her kinfolk, the storytelling magic guaranteed to rob hours of sleep and make the night come alive. Only the brave dare step into her world to listen. And sometimes, the voices still whisper...

Worth finishing! I was depressed during the first half of the book!  It isn't what I enjoy reading most of the time.  I don't like sad! I just want to be entertained for the most part.  I AM glad, however, that I hung in there and finished the book. I thought the ending was good...I was expecting a really sad ending...glad I was wrong.  It is well written... if a bit repetitive in places.  Don't give up...keep reading!

I read a lot of historical fiction, some get it right and some don't --- Tommie Lyn certainly got it right! The writing and telling of the story is superb!! I just purchased book two and three - can't wait to get started! Highly recommend this book.

If you want an emotional roller coaster this is for you! About 280 pages, it goes quickly from one tragedy to the next. The prologue talks about the girl, Muirne, but the story is all about the young man, Ailean (Alan). It ends a little abruptly for my taste but it does end happily. All in all a good story especially for free.

Nice clean easy read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had found it under Christian. The Christian theme is very minor so if that's what you are looking for, you may be disappointed.

High on a Mountain by Tommy Lyn was an amazing Historical novel. From the High Lands of Scotland, to the plantations of old America, Tommy takes us on a journey of one man and his life. Physical battles as well as mental ones, plague the lead character. He lived while others around him died. He is pursued across two countries and an ocean by a man who wishes he could kill him more than once. His hatred so deep, he lived his life to kill the lead character. It finishes in a tremendous battle that heals one of them. But which one? Buy "High on a Mountain, by Tommy Lyn to find out. You will not be disappointed.

This book is set in Scotland in the 1700s. It is very well edited for a freebie. It is a historical romance and is rather bloody. There is a large cast of characters. It has a lot of death in it, so don't get too attached to some of the main characters. The first third of the book was disturbing for me. It is the typical romance, but so very informative and well written, it seems fresh and new. The end occured all at once, there were no events to ease the reader into the conclusion. I am not crazy about historical romances, but this is one of the better ones I have read. There is some rather steamy sex. Chick lit, ages 18 and up. AD

Full marks to Tommie Lyn on her research for this title. She created a hero in Ailean (pronounced Alan in English) McLachlan (sorry – just went English on that one, too) who begins our story as a teenager in Scotland in a time of tired crofting fields and a time when the Clan Chief’s word was law. Ailean had to grow up – to leave behind dreams of battle glory and adventure – when he falls for a pretty girl and settles down. But still, the dreams linger, teasing him, and when his chief calls he follows. To battle and eventually the Field of Culloden in 1745. History buffs will no doubt ascertain how that went for the Highlander. To avoid major spoilers, Our Hero eventually finds himself in the New World, pursued by an enemy who has hated him since their youth when they played a game now known as shinty for the honor of their different clans. A Campbell, the Villain follows Our Hero even across the ocean to seek vengeance for injuries real and imagined. My heart hurt for Ailean, even when I wanted to smack him once or twice. And I felt like scowling at the author, too, for all that she did to Ailean. But she provided us with the terrible side of war and that needed to be shown. She did it and did it thoroughly.

It moved a little slow in the beginning but got better and better. I loved it because it gave a great view of life in Scotland in the 1700's. It then gave a fairly accurate view of the life of the People at that period of time also. I guess my judgment may be a little clouded because my background is both Scottish and Cherokee,with a little Engkish, Irish, Blackfoot and Apache thrown in for luck.

The author tends to repeat ideas over and over. Also over uses words. The most prominent is "pant", "panting" no less than16 times to describe different forms of breathing shallow and fast. Huh? :-/
