Skye O'Malley was the first of Ms. Small's books that I ever read. I became an immediate fan of both the incredible Skye O'Malley, and the tallented author who created her! This book, and the entire Skye O'Malley series represent historical romance as it was supposed to be written!!!

I have read the entire Skye O'Malley series of books (about 12-15 of them) in hardback and paperback. There were two that I had to buy for my nook so that I could read them over and over again. Bertrice Small is one of the best historical romance writers. All the histroy in her books is factual. She describes the meals that they would eat, the mode of dress for both the women and the men, and what life was like for the time period, without being boring. And the romatic scenes are steamy. You get so attached to the characters that you don't want the books to end. And that's why you have to read all the books in the series. Again, one of the best romantic reads ever. Thank you Ms. Small.

I have read this book more times than I can remember...just added it to my library to read again. One of my all time favorites! Excited to get started on it again...might have to purchase the entire Skye O'Malley series. If you like period romance, adventure, pirates, drama, etc.. etc..this one has it all. You won't be disappointed! I would give it 10 stars if I could

I read this book back in the late 80's. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is, even today. I have never forgotten the impact of the characters, the paths their lives took or the lingering feeling of something lost when I finished it. Now, in my thirties, I recalled Skye O'Malley and went out to buy the hard cover copy. I have over 200 books in my library ranging from mystery/suspense, biographies, memoirs and such, but this baby is first and foremost in my mind, always. I have just started reading it again...because summer approaches, and what better way to start the hot season than with a hot book. Also, pirates are on the horizon!

I was taken by the main character, Skye O'Malley. She is a strong, intelligent woman who comes out on top of things no matter what life deals her. Skye is my most favorite character -- I even named a cat after her.

My mother introduced me to Ms.Smalls books when i was a teenager and i have been reading them and rereading them ever since. Ms. Small has given me a love of historical romance/fiction that I have to this day. Thank you Ms. Small.

I read the "The Border Chronicles" entire series and "The Friarsgate Inheritance" series. I had read these several years ago but loved them so that I ordered all of them again to keep in my library. I started the "The O'Malley Saga" had been looking for the first book "Skle O'Malley" until I found she had released again. I so enjoy her stories, strong woman who go through much but at the end land on their own two feet. I feel for these women for all they have to deal with, from losing their true love to finding it again, to finding new love with someone else. You keeping hoping that at the end of the story she does find her 'happily ever after'.

This was the first book id ever read by Bertrice Small.It was shocking at first But as you go through it it was just Fantastic!!!!! she is my number one favorite Author now I started reading from the library soon i started buying the books wherever i could find them i now own almost all of her books and have read them all more than 3 times .Great work very good eye for detail and an intresting way for me to learn historical facts that i actually retain something i couldn't do in history class. if you read this one you have to read the rest not because you cant read one without the other but because you get drawn in to Skye's world!!!!!
