This is a highly emotional book set at the time of Robert the Bruce. The well-drawn characters are too proud to bend to their emotions, putting their relationship constantly at risk, notwithstanding the outside threat. The author is to be applauded for her choice of setting and strength of character studies. - Deborah Elliott, Affaire de Coeur, 2005
