A magical romance about fate, family, men in kilts, and the sometimes twisted path to love from award-winning author Martina Boone.

"Delightful, charming, and heartwarming!" NYT bestselling author Wendy Higgins

Helping her aunt organize a festival in the Scottish Highlands seems like a perfect escape from Anna Cameron's disaster of a broken engagement. The argumentative, kilt-wearing villagers and dangerous sheep are a minor setback, but Connal MacGregor, the secretive man who owns the land where the ancient tradition of Sighting takes place, poses a bigger problem.

For locals, the Balwhither Glen is known as a "thin" place, where the veil between worlds peels back on the first of May each year to reveal an image of the person's one true love. This romantic tradition has been a local secret for centuries, and inviting the public to the Sighting could bring much-needed tourism to save the struggling businesses in the glen. If only Connal MacGregor would agree.

As Anna struggles to mediate between the needs of the village and Connal's fight to keep his fragile daughter safely away from the tabloid press, she finds herself falling in love-with Connal and his daughter, with the villagers, and with the enchanted glen itself. As she discovers, though, knowing whom you are meant to love isn't always welcome news. Her efforts tear open generations of family secrets, and when danger comes calling, trusting themselves and each other may prove to be the hardest choice she and Connal have ever had to make.

Perfect for fans of Nora Roberts, Kristen Hannah, Susan Wiggs, Sarah Addison Allen's magical women's fiction, and Susanna Kearsley's novels with a historical sense of place, Lake of Destiny offers readers a cosy, romantic story filled with gentle fantasy, love, and healing.
