Overview

MacFarlane's Lantern by J. a. Milne

Ralph Barrington was a very young man when he inherited the run-down Georgian mansion of Redwoods in Winchester. In accordance with Margaret Fitzgerald's will, Ralph was unable to sell his inheritance; therefore he and his teenage daughter, Roselyn, known as Ros, were forced to make the best of things and to live in just a few of the rooms. Ralph's wife, Charlotte, was a depressant: she had cruelly denied Ros at birth, and then, Ros re-meets meets Andrew Frazer MacFarlane, who has had an equally tragic and difficult beginning to his life; but not only has Andrew got himself entangled with a woman, who is determined never to let him go, but he also harbours a fearful, dark secret. Set among some of Scotland's most dramatic scenery, this is a powerful tale as seen through the eyes of an eighteenth century, former daughter of the house, Marguerite Fitzgerald Campbell, an adventuress during the Jacobite uprisings, who suffered a cruel rape; she had a child. There is a mystery surrounding the child's parentage which becomes a vital link in saving Redwoods and the North and South Timber Mills from being demolished. And just who is the mysterious, Rafe Frazer? Drama! Scandal! Intrigue! Mystery! Romance!

It was unblievable to find that cattle rustlers stalked the Highlands of Scotland; this is factual and a very interesting piece of Scottish History. This novel is very well written, the modern day sword fight was instigated by the ghost of Marguerite Fitzgerald and set within a very tense plot .Reading the poem is a must and a very good beginning to sorting out the emotions of the two separated lovers. And reading about the lengths that Ros's jealous mother underwent to ruin her daughter's life, tugged at the heartstrings.
