great little historical mystery
This is a wonderful combination of mystery with lots of historical bits carefully added in to make you feel like you are a Scottish immigrant in North Carolina. If you like this period of time check out Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.

Really enjoyable, couldn???t stop listening!
I have read every Outlander book, and because the story in this book runs parallel to part of the Outlander book, Echo in the bone, it was like listening to the Echo in the bone from another perspective.
This is a story of a young Scottish girl who lives with her grandparents during the time England is trying to recruit Highlander immigrants into the war against Patriots in North Carolina. The story describes how the girl???s grandfather tries so hard not to take side. Patriot or Loyalists and what happens once he finally makes his decision. This along with the mystery, intrigue and historical details and Davina Porter???s narration of the story makes an enjoyable listen.
While listening see if you can pick up the voices Davina uses for Claire, Jaime, Ian, and other beloved Outlander characters in this story.
