Summary from Goodreads:

In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown.

Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write.

But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth—the ultimate betrayal—that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her.…


A mystical time traveling tale that brought the future in line with the past.

The way the author wove a historical tale into a new age story, was really creative. As the main character dreamed about something that happened in the past, she used that story to write her book, but when she begins to research her characters, she finds out that the story might actually be true. Its a wonderful way of doing time travel without actual time travel.
