Smorgasbord Bookshelf – New Book on the Shelves – #Scottish #Historical #Romance – Sisters at the Edge of the World by Ailish Sinclair

Delighted to share the news of the latest release from Ailish Sinclair… the historical romance Sisters at the Edge of the World.

About the book

When Morragh speaks to another person for the very first time, she has no idea that he is an invader in her land.

What she does next constitutes a huge betrayal of her people, threatening her closest relationships and even her way of life itself.

As the conflict between the Caledonian tribes and the Roman Sons of Mars intensifies, can she use her high status in the community to lessen the coming death toll or even prevent outright war?

Set in 1st century Northern Scotland, SISTERS AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD is a story of chosen sisters, fierce warriors, divided loyalties and, ultimately, love.

One of the early reviews

Stephen Leatherdale 5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary read  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 October 2022

This was a compelling read. As ever, Ailish has brilliantly woven aspects of character, plot and the setting to create a seamless, affecting and memorable story. It is a book that will keep its hooks in me and I shall think of it often.

The story takes place as Scottish tribes square up to the invading Roman army. With the main character, Morragh, taking centre-stage, it is fascinating to see how her feelings and her development unfold in step with the central conflict. The delicate balancing of her own desires and attitudes with this impending battle is beautifully conceived and is written exquisitely. Despite Morragh’s extraordinary gifts, the author has cast her as a wonderfully human and vulnerable narrator. This only adds to the compelling nature of the book; my fears for her grew the further through the tale I got.

I was swept along by this book and would, without hesitation, recommend reading it.

About Ailish Sinclair

Ailish Sinclair trained as a dancer and taught dance for many years, before working in schools to help children with special needs. A short stint as a housekeeper in a castle fired her already keen interest in untold stories of the past and she sat down to research and write.

She now lives beside a loch with her husband and two children where she still dances and writes and eats rather a lot of chocolate.

Thanks for dropping in today and I hope you will be leaving with some books.. .Sally
