So you guys today marks a historic day on The Book Vortex. Yes, I am being a little melodramatic but its still an important day. I have never participated in a meme before but recently one of my friends, Lauren at The Housework Can Wait, started Throwback Thursdays with Mandi Kaye. From Lauren’s website, Throwback Thursday is a day to:
It’s the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven’t seen the “New Releases” shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.
Right now is actually the PERFECT time for me to participate in Throwback Thursdays because I am currently reading a book called Child of Mist by Kathleen Morgan.
Here is a summary of Child of Mist from Goodreads:
In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1565, superstition and treachery threaten a truce between rival clans. It’s a weak truce at first, bound only by an arranged engagement between Anne MacGregor and Niall Campbell-the heirs of the feuding families.
While Niall wrestles with his suspicions about a traitor in his clan, Anne’s actions do not go unnoticed. And as accusations of witchcraft abound, the strong and sometimes callous Campbell heir must fight for Anne’s safety among disconcerted clan members. Meanwhile his own safety in threatened with the ever-present threat of someone who wants him dead.
Will Niall discover the traitor’s identity in time? Can Anne find a way to fit into her new surroundings? Will the two learn to love each other despite the conflict? With a perfect mix of a burgeoning romance and thrilling suspense, this book is historical fiction at its best
Why I love this book? First its completely different from anything that I’ve read. Its a Scottish Historical Fiction and its not a Young Adult book. *GASP* I know! Not a YA! But you guys, its SO good! Two enemies bound by duty to be together. We get to watch these two fall in love and LOTS of drama ensuing.
One of the things that I really love about this book is that its so authentic. Kathleen Morgan does a fantastic job with the language and behavior of her characters.
The book is a lot better than my feeble description but if you are a lover of historical fiction and romance with a strong and fierce female lead then this is the book for you! Check it out, give it a chance I don’t think you’ll regret it.
