Lara MacInnes travels to Scotland to search her family history. While staying with the Glendennings she discovers that there is a strong history between the two families. An old feud going back to the time of the Jacobites. However her very great grandfather Lachlan MacInnes fell in love with Elspeth Glendenning. The past and the present mirror each other as Lara falls in love with Iain Glendenning. The stories of present day as well as from the 1800 unfold as you turn the pages of The MacInnes Affair. Blair McDowell writing will have you falling in love with the mists and moors of Scotland as you follow both pairs of MaCinnes and Glendennings. Scotland is as much of this story as the characters are. The work the author has put into this book is obvious through her descriptions of the land, the clothing, language, traditions and the overall setting of the stories. Quite an enjoyable escape, I thank the author and NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read The MacInnes Affair and offer my feedback.
