Book Review: The Winter Sea (Slains, #1) by Susanna Kearsley

, by Mystee




Book Description

 December 1, 2010
History has all but forgotten...

In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown.

Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write.

But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth-the ultimate betrayal-that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her...

Review: I'm always a little hesitant to read something set in two different time periods. If it's a series and from book to book the time periods change -- OK, but I'm always worried about a transfer within the same book. Very few authors are able to attain this well. Susanna Kearsley does just that. 

A brilliant story of a writer mixed in with actual historical facts. There's suspense, romance, sadness and humor. Characters within this book are brilliantly portrayed. You'll love some, hate some and not know just what you think of others. 

If you're looking for a great read with a wonderful love story as well as historical facts, curl up on the couch or in your favorite chair, grab your blanket and this book. You won't be disappointed.
