Andrew, a wealthy Australian architect, takes life too seriously, whereas his PA Elizabeth is outgoing and fun-loving; a perfect foil for her somber boss.
She is passionate about Celtic lore and language. With great reluctance Andrew answers a plea from his two elderly aunts to travel to Scotland before his uncle dies. He has no desire to visit the land his father left under a cloud many years ago, but Liz persuades him to take her along.
In the draughty and dilapidated castle, while exploring a disused attic, the pair set off a course of events that propel them back in time to 1050 where they meet Travis, coincidentally Andrew’s double.

“I enjoyed every minute of this book. Tricia McGill perfectly pulls the reader back in time along with Andrew and Liz, describing the castle and its inhabitants in such detail they fully come to life. Andrew’s aunts, Tilda and Kitty, are gems whose unsolicited advice made me laugh out loud! The dialogue in this story is one of its strongest features, and coupled with an intriguing plot it is a winning combination.” Marlene FAR 4 ½ angels
“Multi-published author Tricia McGill crafts an exciting, fast moving Highlander saga. This can’t-put-it-down-story is guaranteed to keep you turning pages.” JoEllen Conger Rating: 5
“This is a remarkable book, and Ms. McGill is an outstanding writer. There is rich historical detail of everyday medieval life, and characters who stepped right out of the annuls of history. I love time travel books, and this one is exceptional.” Deborah Brent for Romantic Times
“This Highland tale has all the majesty of a historical and all the magic of a time travel. However this Scottish pair transcends the centuries in a way sure to surprise the reader. The heroine is a strong capable woman, one of many skills. The hero is equally strong and I imagine even has good legs as he is reputed to look dashing in a kilt. My pleasure in reading this tale opened my visions as I allowed myself to be swept to the Scottish highlands. This is a story that takes you away from the daily mundane and embraces you in a far past time.” A. Dee Carey/ Fantasy Novelist
“When Andrew travels to Scotland with his P.A., Liz, he expects to visit a few elderly relatives, see the land of his father’s birth, and return home to his busy life in Australia. A chance visit to the attic of the family castle, sends the two of them back in time over 900 years to a place of danger and intrigue among his ancestors. While he and Liz struggle to survive, they learn much about the time and themselves and wonder if they will live long enough to return home. I am not usually a fan of this genre, but this book might just have changed my mind…
The author paints a vivid picture of Scotland in the eleventh century, and for once the images were not all of how the nobility lived…
There are many exciting scenes of battle and intrigue, and great descriptions of life in that time period, some of them so vivid that you can almost smell and taste the food. What a great story!”

“McGill gives us a spellbinding, fast-moving plot. Andrew is intelligent, considerate, and out of his depth when pitted against Travis, the strong, virile, Alpha male.”
