Not a read for the faint-hearted. The aftermath of Culloden (April 1746) and this novel reflects the horror and violence suffered by the defeated Scots. There are graphic and explicit scenes, so not a book for a relaxing bedtime read, and being honest, it's a little slow in places but it is a stunning, novel that brought home the reality of what happened in the glens and highlands.

I've chosen Ruth Downie's novella Prima Facie as my book of the month because the entire series is such delightful fun to read. This is a murder mystery with well-drawn plots and brilliant characters. The bonus of a touch of humour is just right - not overdone or feeling false. I wish we could see these as TV dramas!

Thank you for leaving a comment - it should appear soon, but due to the high rise of unsuitable nuisance spam I am sometimes having to vet comments before they are posted. If you are having problems, contact me on author AT helenhollick DOT net and I will post your comment for you. That said ...SPAMMERS or distasteful rudeness will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam my blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that I DID warn you...
