It’s 1453, in Gleann Moireasdan, Scotland. Laird Gavin MacKinnon’s young son has been missing for years. Having done everything to try to find him among the neighboring clans, Gavin finally discovers Ewan’s possible location, immediately raiding the castle of rival Lewis MacIntyre. Except once found, Ewan doesn’t recognize his father and is instead calling for the strange woman claiming to be his mother. Deirdre MacIntyre will do anything to keep her son safe—even if it means giving into Gavin’s demand that she return home with him and Ewan. Gavin quickly realizes that if he wants to reconnect with Ewan, he’ll have to change his attitude toward Deirdre, which opens the door for other affections. When Deirdre’s clan comes to fight for her return, Gavin must come to terms with her place in his life and Ewan’s life.
VERDICT This fourth book in McLayne’s series (beginning with Highland Promise) continues to reveal the larger intrigue befalling the sons of Gregor MacLeod, while giving Gavin and Deirdre a dramatic love story of their own.
