Publisher's Summary

When best-selling author Carrie McClelland visits the windswept ruins of Slains Castle, she is enchanted by the stark and beautiful Scottish landscape. The area is strangely familiar to her but she puts aside her faint sense of unease to begin her new novel, using the castle as her setting, and one of her own ancestors, Sophia, as her heroine.

Then Carrie realizes her writing is taking on a life of its own and the lines between fact and fiction become increasingly blurred. As Sophia's memories draw Carrie more deeply into the intrigue of 1708, she discovers a captivating love story lost in time.

After 300 years, 'Sophia's Secret' must be told.

Stick With It

Some really good historical background and facts. Not exactly Outlander but does keep to the historical facts and in contrast to Outlander gives a different perspective on certain parallel stories. Maybe it was the narrator but I didn’t get into it as much though the story was intriguing. A bit slow at times but overall a good read

The Winter Sea.

I loved the book. It was an interesting twist for a time travel story. The attention to geographical detail was perfect.
The characters were intriguing and a cliffhanger at the end of the book leaving room for a follow up storyline.

As with all her books this is wonderful. My second favourite after Marianna. Her heroine and hero are well developed.

Loved the book! And Rosalyn Landor is the best!!!

The book was beautifully written, my first by the author actually, I only decided to listen because it was narrated by Rosalyn Landor who is my favourite. Now I hear they have changed the title of the book, ans also changed the narrator! Big mistake!!! Nobody can bring the characters to life as Rosalyn Landor! I hope the author uses her voice in more of her books. Overall, a lovely, heart-touching love story, superbly narrated!
