Kathleen Morgan – Child of the Mist

From the Back Cover:

In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1564, superstitions threaten a truce . . . a traitor plans his attack . . and a new love is born.

An arranged betrothal was never the course Anne MacGregor imagined her life would take. Yet when her father explains that her cooperation is the only hope for peace, Anne sees no other choice. Even one year of commitment to Niall Campbell, after all, would win a long-sought truce between the feuding families.

But as Anne soon discovers, peace is not so easily achieved. Before she even arrives at her new home, rumors about her abound and her safety is threatened. Meanwhile, Niall’s ascension as leader of his clan is in jeopardy, as a traitor works to bring about his downfall.

As Niall and Anne begin to see beyond each other’s defenses, love takes them by surprise. But will it be enough to defeat their foes? Or will the truce be broken, their lives forfeit, and war return to their beloved land?

Amanda’s Review:

How I love a medieval romance! And this one drew me right into the time period and kept me turning the pages. Kathleen Morgan showed the Scottish imagery so well, I could hear their accents strongly in my head while I read and for a long time after.

Child of the Mist revealed the strong superstition of that time when a woman who didn’t quite follow the norms could be classified as a witch with little evidence on which to base the accusation on.  And of course, the man falling in love with her had a terrible time convincing people of her innocence, not matter that he was the clan chieftain.

There was plenty of intrigue and romance to keep me riveted throughout this novel. I feel like I have found a treasure in Kathleen Morgan and I can’t wait to read more of her work. Child of the Mist is a great read and highly recommended.
