Highland Blessings by Jennifer Hudson Taylor

I absolutely loved Highland Blessings! Jennifer Hudson Taylor swept me away in a time period I love and a setting I adore! Medieval Scotland. Lush, untamed land, coupled with courageous, braw lairds of the clan...well, I practically swooned in several of the scenes.

Scotland in the 1400's was a time of feuds between clans. Jennifer takes us on a journey of two clans attempting to make peace at the expense of a young womans freedom. I loved that the heroine was a feisty woman, strong and secure in her beliefs. I loved the hero, who was all that a medieval warrior should be, yet with a gentle heart that could treasure a woman as strong of will as the heroine was. Their story has twists and turns, and is a great, compelling read.

This is the kind of book I would love to write! I love the setting, the time period, the characters, the plot twists...everything! Jennifer has a great handle on the era and the details of setting. She transports you to a breathtaking place of love and danger. You will love this book!

Backcover:
Scotland, 1473. Highland warrior Bryce MacPhearson kidnaps Akira MacKenzie on her wedding day to honor a promise he made to his dying father. When he forces Akira to wed him, hoping to end a half-century-old feud between their clans, she struggles to overcome her anger and resentment. Her strength in the Lord becomes a witness to Bryce. She learns to forgive, and he begins to trust. How will God turn a simple promise into bountiful Highland Blessings, when there is a traitor in their midst and murder is the ultimate weapon?
