This fast-paced historical romance is perfectly narrated by Derek Perkins, who handles some tongue-twisting Gaelic phrases and a variety of accents with ease. The listener is swept away to 1500s Scotland, where Lady Sybil has been left to fend for herself after her treasonous brothers have fled the country. Her fate seems grim until Rory MacKenzie, brother of a Highland chieftain, arrives to claim her as his wife. It seems Sybil's brothers gambled her away before fleeing. Fearing the Queen's wrath for her brothers' crimes, Sybil escapes with Rory, while never truly planning to honor the marriage contract. Many real historical figures are woven into the story, and the narration immerses one in the Scottish culture for a satisfying audiobook experience.
