Synopsis:Long ago, in the days when castles were fortresses and ladies were betrothed with no thought of love, lived the exquisite Isobel, the headstrong and passionate Countess of Buchan. Married to a man she both feared and loathed, Isobel became the mistress of the famed Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland.
Today,in the present, there is Clare Royland, unhappily married to a greedy banker. Clare is rich, beautiful--and obsessed with a dream she had since early childhood, a dream of her ancestor Isobel in the 12th century and the pain she suffered in the name of love.
When Clare inherits Duncairn Castle, once home to Isobel, her husband tries to steal it from her.
To escape from his treachery, Clare retreats into her dreams, into her past--and relives the passions and the betrayals which have spanned the centuries, a drama that is destined to be replayed until it is layed to rest.
Erskine at her finest in this trade paperback of man and wiman fated to love through the centuries against the backdrop of ancient Scotland...
Great novel as usual from Barbara. She must spend a few years researching every novel she writes.
