Keely has lived her life on
the outskirts of the village for nearly all her life. The
villagers and the rest of the Highlands call her the witch
woman behind her back. Whoever requests help of her receives
it, as it is part of who she is. Her healing is a gift that
she will not deny to any others. She knows she will always be
alone. Her dreams of the future both hinder and help her.
Unfortunately, the Scottish King is attempting to bring Keely
to trial as a witch. Now she has the added burden of being
wary of soldiers and others that wish her harm.
Ian McPherson was injured in
battle. Keely healed him and is now attempting to help him
regain his memory.
Even knowing that he cannot
remember the past, Ian knows he was not sent to do Keely harm.
But what was he sent for? In his soul he knows that he is a
protector and a decent man.
They feel the pull of destiny
towards each other. Both are honorable. Life has brought them
together and they must find their way towards the future. Or
are they already too late?
is a tale of two stubborn souls that find themselves in a time
of danger. They work towards finding solutions to life’s
problems separately but end up in the same spot at the end. I
enjoyed this book as it kept my attention with the physical
interplay between Keely and Ian while giving an insight into
both of their thoughts at key moments in the story. A well
written, satisfying historical novel.
Highland Magic is book two of
the Highland Trilogy series by Christine Young but can be read
on its own.
