I should first say that I was looking forward to this 'standalone sequel' more than any of the others in the Four Seasons Quartet.  After finishing 'Island of the Swans', I immediately contacted the author via Goodreads and sent her a big WHAT HAPPENS??.  Well, That Autumn in Edinburgh is the answer and the answer does not disappoint. With a great present day story that I found just as interesting as the past the characters were trying to dig up, That 'Autumn in Edinburgh' weaves a tale that is not for someone looking for a 'fluffy' read.  Like all of Ms. Ware's books, Autumn takes a little commitment.  There are numerous characters, past and present to keep track of, not to mention all of the Scottish and English details.  But that is what makes all of her books so worth a read.  There are is much depth to her characters, but never too much.  Her ability to juggle a complex plot (because anytime you're dealing with two different times, the plot is automatically complex), a sea of characters and a lush, unfamiliar landscape easily puts her in my top 5 favorite authors. Some of my favorites points about That Autumn in Edinburgh (may contain mini-spoilers): 1) A man who is faithful to his wife, even though his marriage is falling apart.  That never seems to happen. 2) Showing how your family can REALLY screw you up. 3) Ms. Ware's descriptions of Scotland and the Scottish businesses.  Again, in depth but never too much that I felt like I was lost in the description. 4) Two believable main characters with real problems. 5)  A beautiful connection between the main characters and the characters from Island of the Swans.   Finally, I do not believe that you need to read Island of the Swans first.  In fact, Swans may be an easier read if you read That Autumn in Edinburgh first.  Either way, both are worth a read...maybe several reads.

I couldn't stop reading! It so reminded me of my own visit to Scotland. Wonderful, descriptive writing with a tear-wrenching, joyful ending.

Predictable outcome; repetitious; awkward writing; spelling mistakes --- it' for its, pubic for public. Fairly decent plot.

Story or should I say stories as there were really two themes in the book, were interesting, but the writing was dragging things out and became boring to the point where I skimmed sections just to get to the end. It seemed like the historical points were repeated over and over without adding much value to the book. Just an okay book.

I adored the historical feel of this book and how the past and present were woven together so effortlessly. This story had me hooked within a few paragraphs and still has me in a stranglehold. Major book hang over! I have not read Island of the Swans, but Ciji Ware gave me all the back ground info needed to fully understand the entire story. That being said, I intend on going back to read it anyway. This was the second book from this author I've read and I have enjoyed both.
