"Starkeeper" is a sequel to the first part of the story which is "Starfinder". Both very good books. Need to be read together. The story of a family from Scotland after the Battle of Culloden to America in the Revolutionary War era. Well worth the read. Both books contain strife and struggle and romance and success and a whole lot of entertainment.
Return to the thrilling days of the Revolutionary War with award-winning author Patricia Potter; in the tale of a courageous man willing to die for his nation's freedom...and a captivating beauty who dares to cross battle lines to claim the heart of a man who becomes her Star Keeper.
I loved this book. I read it in two days. The American Revolution made for an exciting background to the plot. Both characters are charming and likeable. So often in romance novels, one of the characters is not very nice. You love both of these people. The story moves very quickly, the plot is very exciting, and the ending is wonderful!
