Staff Reviews


From time to time I love to return to books I have read in the past. This always seems to lead me back to my favorite genre - historical fiction. I especially love to read about Scotland - oh to be there and feel the wind, see the old castles, and experience the beauty of it all first hand.

The Winter Sea does just that! It takes you there - but back into history. To 1708 - when young King James was attempting to come back to Scotland and claim his crown. The life of Sophia, the heroine, is remembered through the thoughts of the main character, Carrie, who is an author writing her newest novel. She experiences an unusual passing down of history through what can only be described as 'mind time-travel'.

so very good that you'll want to read it twice!

"For if there was no winter, we could never hope for spring. The spring will come!"

Description


A NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER!

"I've loved every one of Susanna's books! She has bedrock research and a butterfly's delicate touch with characters—sure recipe for historical fiction that sucks you in and won't let go!"—DIANA GABALDON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Outlander

A hauntingly beautiful tale of love that transcends time: an American writer travels to Scotland to craft a novel about the Jacobite Rebellion, only to discover her own ancestral memories of that torrid moment in Scottish history...

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. When young Sophia Paterson travels to Slains Castle by the sea, she finds herself in the midst of the dangerous intrigue.

Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of that historic Scottish castle, she starts to write. But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be the only living person who knows the truth—the ultimate betrayal—that happened all those years ago.

A sweeping historical fantasy of love, danger, and time travel, Susanna Kearsley masterfully weaves Scotland's past into Carrie's present in this stunning book.
