Catriona is a successful Celtic fiddler living in Florida. She comes from a wealthy background. The grandfather who raised her is a successful doctor, now retired. She has dreams of another time and a man who haunts her even when awake.
Carrick is the Laird of the MacDonnell clan. His wife was raped and murdered by the English after Culloden, and he has lost his will to live. The local witch Morag has a way for him to see his beloved Jenny again and bring her back home.
Scotland after Culloden is a place of grief and change. The life that the Highlander has always known is no more. The English are taking over, and anyone with Jacobite sympathies is in danger. Carrick survived the battle, but his wife did not. Jenny has been reincarnated in present day Florida, and Carrick travels to that time to reunite with his love.
I loved this story. Carrick and Catriona are great characters. Both are honorable but very strong willed. The secondary characters are equally well written, particularly Cat's sister, Olivia, who will not let go of her modern gadgets. The plot is fast moving and very exciting, and the love scenes are beautifully written. In accordance with the times. there is some rather brutal violence both on and off scene. There is a very clever cliffhanger of an ending that will have you looking for the next book.
