Overview

The lovely village of Killin lies in the heart of Scotland; the majestic Ben Lawers watching over her like a knight guarding his castle. If you listen carefully, you will hear The Falls of Dochart rushing over the black rocks telling the secrets of the Clan McNab whose burial ground lies on her island and is sheltered by the golden aura that surrounds her. Steeped in history, her resilient people have weathered The Highland Clearances and retold the stories of Fingal and his stone, Finlarig Castle, the ferocious Campbell Clan and all of the superstitions that make them who they are today with their colorful language and deep rooted traditions.
Born and raised in this historic village are William and Mary who grew up together and fell in love; their fathers do not see eye to eye and William must decide if he wants to become a hated tacksman like his father or find his own lot in life. Then, a tragic accident changes the lives of these two young people; but will it bring them closer together or tear them farther apart?
How many deep dark secrets is William keeping from those who love him? is he the easy going, good looking lad everyone assumed him to be or a man of mystery?
A large inheritance brings financial security to many of the Killin residents but does it make the heiress happy or will she spend her life looking at the past; unable to see what's waiting for her in the future?
Does the lonely little nurse with the big heart finally find real love or will she be betrayed by the bonnie lass with the wild black hair and black eyes?
How long will the sensuous teacher with the intense dark eyes wait in the wings to finally conquer the woman he loves before he decides to give up and try to find someone else?
Can a young man return home again and be forgiven or must he spend the rest of his life on the outskirts yearing to see his beloved Killin again?
Find out in The Road Home.

About the Author

Charlotte Buelow was born and raised in rural Wisconsin. Her paternal grandmother was a McHenry and it is believed that her ancestors may have come from Scotland. She spent over a year researching Scotland's small towns and villages and finally decided to base her novel around The Village of Killin, Scotland.
"Although I have never been to Killin, I fell in love with all the folklore and history of The Village and I have spent hours browsing pictures of its stunning beauty." "I hope someday i may be fortunate enough to visit."
This is her first novel. She attributes her love of reading and writing to her mother, Lois Webster, who always had a book in her hand and a pen in her fingers.
