The author has created a historical romance centred in Scotland during WW1. The main character, Lily, is an American heiress and socialite who is sent to England to live with family to try and cure her careless ways. She and her English cousin sign up to become nurses to help the wounded soldiers of the war. They are sent to work in a convalescent home in Scotland. The home is in actual fact a great estate-Kinclavoch Castle- that belongs to Lord Strathem. Lily finds herself entangled with the Lord as they try to determine who is trying to sabotage Kinclavoch Castle.
The book was engaging and the characters were likable and believable. The main characters were spunky and at times humourous. Beautiful descriptions of Scotland and stories about what it was like to be at the front during WWI were interwoven throughout the book. It was a book that was hard to put down.
Thanks to Net Galley for this preview copy in return for my honest review. These opinions are my own.
