...and I simply loved it. As the book opens, our English heroine, Kate, has been deflowered and impregnated in one fell swoop, and the selfish cad responsible has bundled her off to Scotland to stay with friends/relatives of his, to be out of his way. Kate has been thrown out of her own home by her adoptive parents and is homeless, sad and frightened. As the months pass in Scotland, this innocent, sweet, thoughtful girl slowly becomes a part of the Munro clan and their way of life on their estate. Soon she never wants to leave, and we see a beautiful love story developing, between Kate and her new surroundings, Kate and the family who has taken her in, and possibly Kate and the lord of the manor. :) You will fall in love with the author's vivid descriptions and mostly with Kate, who is a very loveable, unassuming sweetheart of a girl. I highly recommend this wonderful story!
