Reviewed by Cindy Loven

Lady Elisabeth Kerr has secrets, secrets she hasn't even shared with her husband.  About who or how she worships.  Unfortunately Lord Kerr too has secrets. Secret mistresses, however he is madly in love with his wife, just convinced that he has a "weakness" for other women. 
From totally different social standings, Lady Kerr is often not accepted by her mother in law nor her sister in law, because she is a Highlander.  Bonny Prince Charlie and his rebel army, do nothing to help her relationship with her mother in law, especially once Lord Kerr and his brother take a stand on Prince Charlie's side of the war.
A book that you will need to pay close attention to, otherwise you will be lost.  I had lots of trouble getting into this book, I love Liz Curtis Higgs, and tried really hard to enjoy the book, but the historical setting was not one of my favorite time periods  to read about.  Liz Curtis Higgs however does prove she is a superb author in her details that show long hours of research and studying of that time period and culture.  464 pages $US 14.99 3 stars.
