Publisher's Summary

Blind since birth, widowed in her 20s, now lonely in her 40s, Marianne Fraser lives in Edinburgh in elegant, angry anonymity with her sister, Louisa, a successful novelist. Marianne's passionate nature finds solace and expression in music, a love she finds she shares with Keir, a man she encounters on her doorstep one winter's night.
Whilst Marianne has had her share of men attracted to her because they want to rescue her, Keir makes no concession to her condition. He is abrupt to the point of rudeness, and yet oddly kind. But can Marianne trust her feelings for this reclusive stranger who wants to take a blind woman to his island home on Skye, to 'show' her the stars?

Very contrived plot with a pleasant cast

Everything was wonderful, then all of a sudden there was a silly misunderstanding that caused the lovers to pull apart, then what do you know, a romantic final reconciliation at the end. It was a different story with unusual and appealing characters, and great description, but the plot was ridiculous, and formulaic. I would have loved to see a little mystery sprinkled in or maybe some more extreme action to spice it up. I just liked all the nice people in this pretty little story and wished them the best.

What a beautiful and wonderful story...

I absolutely loved this book! The author kept me extremely interested in the story with the perfect characters and their personalities. Oh! And Catherine McCarron has me hooked! This is the second book I've listened to from her. She does a wonderful job in reading that doesn't feel being read to.

superb well written book

If you could sum up Star Gazing in three words, what would they be?

excellent interesting thought provoking

What did you like best about this story?

the explanations of the problems a blind person faces daily, the author really understands this. very well written. I have now read everything Linda Gillard has written and feel they are extremely well written that you can't put them down. the descriptions of Skye are really great.

Which character – as performed by Cathleen McCarron – was your favourite?

Very difficult to choose between the blind person and the gentleman she meets.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All of it.

Any additional comments?

All her other books are equally as good. I think my favorite might be The Glass Guardian but very difficult to choose. They all are linked/based in Skye thoroughly enjoyed all her books. A greagt Read.
