Dougal falls in love with Glenna and the pair spend many years together living in an abandoned croft. But the Sassenach still scour Scotland, searching for all Highlanders, and it is only a matter of time before Dougal and Glenna are discovered. Glenna is captured, shipped overseas, and forced into indentured servitude. Dougal joins an English army made of vanquished Scots and sails for the colonies in hope of locating his Glenna. (Skipping a lot here to avoid spoilers.) Glenna, believing Dougal to be dead, fights simply to survive. And Dougal will risk everything for the chance to find his true love.
***** FOUR AND A HALF STARS! This book is broken into two parts. Part One is a little over two hundred pages and follows Dougal. Most of my synopsis covers it. Part Two follows Glenna, from the moment she is captured in Scotland, and is around ninety pages in length.
Those who read the reviews on my site know that I always warn of any cruelty to animals and children. Rest assured there is no need to fear either type of cruelty within the pages of this novel. I also warn readers of any forced intercourse. Readers will find one or two unwilling scenes; however, the author glosses over these parts. Nothing is too graphic and readers with very soft hearts should have no trouble.Read more ›
The novel kicks-off with the Battle of Culloden, just like Under The Same Sky did, only this time around Genevieve explores the adventures of Andrew MacDonnel's brother, Dougal. I absolutely loved reading about Andrew and Maggie in Graham's previous book, and you can only imagine how incredibly happy I was to know that now I'll get to meet and learn more about his brother! Just like Andrew, Dougal is not just another warrior caught in the final confrontation of the 1745 Jacobite Rising, he is fierce, devoted to his family and country, and he possesses a special talent that allows him to hear other men's thoughts and see the future in his dreams. The Battle of Culloden will change his life forever. He'll lose everyone he ever cared about and will be captured by the English army.Read more ›
So, Sound of the Heart. It is a companion to Under the Same Sky but stands alone without any difficulty. While Under the Same Sky tells Andrew's story, Sound of the Heart tells the story of Andrew's brother, Dougal. Dougal is captured after the fight at Culloden and that's where his adventure, and this book, begin. Along the way we meet kindred spirits, strong women and stronger men. We travel England, Ireland, Scotland and the USA. We enjoy amazing highs and terrible lows. There is no emotional stone left unturned as the reader moves from page 1 to page 310. I can't wait for Genevieve Graham's next offering.
If you are looking for a beautifully written Scottish romance of a Warrior from the Highlands of Scotland, then I highly recommend "Sound of the Heart" by Genevieve Graham. This novel was full of tenderness and adventure. I devoured this book. I read "Under the same sky" and loved it , but found this one breathtaking. It's the story of Dougal and Glenna! Dougal, is not dead, as I thought after reading her first novel, he found himself prisoner by the British after the battle of Culloden. These British soldiers will try to make Dougal forget his Scottish heritage. During his captivity, he will make friends with John, Aiden, Joseph and they will try to escape. Will they be able to run way! Dougal will, also, soon discover who is really Aiden, the young and shy drummer boy! This writer was able to describe in details the lives of the soldiers and their family after the battle of Culloden. I do not want to spoil the story for the readers and not give any details. You will have to read this amazing story! I highly recommend this historical romance. Very well written, had me hooked from the first page and could not put it down. Ms. Graham is a very descriptive writer and I love her style of writing. I will surely read this author's next book! She is truly a great writer that I highly recommend! I want to thank Ms. Graham and Penguin Canada for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
