An enthralling read

In Jessica Blair's new novel, defiance, ruthlessness and intrigue compete with love and loyalty in a story that moves through Yorkshire, Shetland and America in an age of marked contrast.

Jessica Blair grew up in Middlesbrough, trained as a teacher and now lives in Ampleforth. She became a full-time writer in 1977 and has written more than 50 books under various pseudonyms.


In Shetland, Malcolm McFadden, heir to the Garstan Estate, disagrees with his father's plan to clear the crofters from his land and turn it over to sheep. He proposes to defy convention by marrying crofter's daughter Rowena Murray, but she hesitates, and Malcolm leaves Shetland on his own.

Then he meets Kate Swan - a Whitby girl cast out by her father for refusing to marry a man she despised - and they are instantly attracted to one other. However, when Malcolm receives the news that the Highland Clearances have begun, old loyalties draw him back to Shetland where he vanishes without trace.

Will Kate's love and determination win through, enabling her to discover what has become of Malcolm? Or will his old ties to Rowena, his first love, prove too strong, and cause Kate to regret the road she has travelled?
