A magical novel about destiny, family, food, intrigue, healing, men in kilts, and the sometimes twisted path to love from the award-winning author of Compulsion. "Delightful, charming, and heartwarming." --NYT bestselling author Wendy Higgins
Helping her aunt organize a festival in a picturesque village nestled among the Highland braes of Scotland seems like the perfect escape from Anna Cameron's broken engagement and the mistake that ended her legal career. To succeed in helping the struggling community, though, she'll need to wrangle kilt-wearing villagers, dangerous sheep, meandering dogs, and the stubborn land-owner who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of "Sighting."
For centuries, the glen has been known to locals as a "thin" place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning and reflects the face of a person's one true love in the tranquil waters of the loch. The tradition could draw much-needed tourists by the busload, but that's exactly what Connal MacGregor doesn't want when he's desperate to keep his daughter out of the public eye.
Struggling to mediate between Connal and the needs of the village, Anna finds herself falling in love with all of them: Connal and his disfigured daughter, the villagers, and the magical glen. But opening the "Sighting" to strangers reveals generations of scars within the community and within Connal and Anna themselves. Confronting those wounds could finally set them free to love with their whole hearts--or endanger their every chance of happiness.
An enchanting journey through love and healing perfect for fans of Nora Roberts, Susanna Kearsley, Susan Wiggs, Sarah Addison Allen, Susan Mallery, Lauren K. Denton, Inglath Cooper, and Diana Gabaldon.
