Highland Heir

Elspeth Beatty
4/5 (92 ratings)
An innocent, lonely little Smithy’s daughter, Mary is humiliated by Margret, the beautiful daughter of the landowner on the day that her mother is lying dying in their small highlands cottage. To add to the insult, Margret takes little Mary’s only precious possession as her own. Mary makes a vow never to allow this evil witch to take anything from her ever again.

Mary grows into a respectable, well-mannered young lady and catches the eye of her erstwhile childhood friend, Donald, son of the clan leader and Laird, and heir to Inverlochy Castle and Fort William. Their relationship is not to be, since Donald is promised to another, for the betterment of his clan.

Is it dishonourable to choose love over the throne of Scotland? Is it possible to live a life without love, destined to exist with only the solace of the promise of luxuries and entitlement?

Follow this author’s heart-wrenching reach into the engaging history of the Scottish Highlanders’ love of country and clan, and the lives of the commoners and noble as they battle to attain and hold onto their chosen existence.
