This story was about what happened to the other sister, Elisabeth - the doctor, after she and her twin sister, Isabella, were transported from modern times back to 16th century Scotland by their ancestor the Black Douglas. The previous book (The Return of Black Douglas) focused on Isabella, the archaeologist, who marries Alysandir, Chief of the Clan Mackinnon. I liked reading about Isabella and Alysandir and was really looking forward to reading Elisabeth's story, but I was disappointed in it. For some reason I just couldn't get into Elisabeth and David's romance. I never felt any chemistry between them. They were both kind of boring characters. Elisabeth and David both were too emotionally withdrawn for me. I realize this is because they both suffered losses that left them wary, numb, and in David's case, bitter, but I never became "convinced" when the two of them seemingly left behind their emotional distances and fell in love. It didn't really make sense to me what they saw in each other. Elisabeth seemed too in love with practicing medicine also. Another puzzling aspect to the story was I never could figure out why the MacLean kept capturing Elisabeth and trying to force her to marry his son. That was never really explained. He certainly went to a lot of trouble and was very persistent in capturing her. It seemed more like he liked her and wanted her for himself, more than his son ever did. The whole story was all just a little too dry and forced for me. I do love, however, the ghost of the Black Douglas. He adds humor and affection to the story and I looked forward to the parts where he would "pop in".
