What is life worth without the love you're meant for?
Sent to the brink of death by his own brother's blade, Eoghanan McMillan clings to the brief moments he spends in the shadows, watching from afar the beautiful lass he's never met. He spends his time some four centuries after his birth, slowly building his strength so that he may return home, but each glimpse into the woman's life leaves him wanting. He wants nothing more than to know her.
When Grace Mitchell's job as a photojournalist sends her to Scotland with her young son, Cooper, in tow, her greatest wish is to escape from the aftermath of the wedding she abandoned. Instead, her life complicates further when she meets the mysterious, scarred, and alluring Eoghanan McMillan, a man so unlike any she's ever known. She falls for him quickly, but, after a spell sends them back in time to the 17th century, Grace is forced to accept the amazing truth about the man she's just beginning to know and to re-think the life she had planned for herself.
Will their love for one another be enough to make Grace stay in a time so different from her own - a decision that will alter the direction of her young son's life entirely? Or will she sacrifice a future with the man she loves to give her son a life of normalcy? In the end, she may just learn that the decision isn't hers to make.

Morna has magic; Bethany & Lily have magic too!
Without question. It had me spellbound - which is why my review title states that "...Bethany and Lily have magic." I downloaded the book just after the polls closed on Super Tuesday. I did nothing else but take potty breaks until I'd finished it! If I thought the story was powerful when I read the ebook, I had no idea how it would capture and hold me while listening to it via audible.
I'm going to challenge myself to word this to avoid the risk of presenting a spoiler - my most memorable moment was when Charles was walking Grace to the most magical day of her life and he shared with her how his wife let him know the depths of how/why she thought of Grace as their own daughter. I honestly cried as I listened to that part.
There are many....to pick one would require putting them all in a hat and picking one randomly...and again it's hard to answer this question without presenting a spoiler, so I'll try to word it in a way as not to do so....the scene when Cooper knew he was facing imminent danger and the plans he made to face it and thwart it.
Absolutely....although I hadn't planned to do that when I first clicked on 'listen now' that is what happened. I downloaded the book on my smartphone after I left my polling place on Super Tuesday...started listening to it on my drive home, continued listening to it as I entered the house and got settled and remained comfortably seated on the comfy couch in my office until it was finished....stopping only for bathroom breaks.
I think this book presented the greatest challenge for Lily Collingwood to try to adequately represent the voice of a phenomenal child like Cooper. At the beginning I wasn't sure it met what I had conjured up in my mind that he would sound like after having read the ebook. But by the time I'd gotten half-way through the audible book, I was sold.
This story was like new as I listened to it. Many times throughout my listening experience, I closed my eyes and got lost in what Lily was saying/how she delivered the story. When you're reading a traditional book or an ebook and you get to a point where you want to close your eyes at a particularly moving scene, the story stops until you can open your eyes and continue reading. But when you're listening, the story never stops....you can surrender to your emotions and continue experiencing the story. I cried, smiled and laughed while listening. At times...especially during the love scenes, I imagined myself reacting to the things that EO was saying to Grace and I felt the love.
I would highly recommend this book to all fans of the Morna's Legacy series. If anyone who is unfamiliar with the series gets their hands on it, I recommend experiencing the books in order. This is book 4 of a series of 7 (soon to be 8).

A moments glance
Yes, I enjoyed the story and the performance. Lily Collingwood is gifted with the ability to bring the charters their own voice.
It bought the story into the present time and introduces Grace and Cooper into the magical world waiting for them in Scotland. It was fun to listen to them getting a glimpse of Eoghanan before they actually met him.
I have listed to all of the available Bethany Claire Morna's Legacy books. I'm going to look to see if she has other titles
Yes. I didn't want to put it down to go to work or to sleep.
I can't wait for more of both Bethany Claire and Lily Collingwood's books and performances.
