I’ve never seen traditional Scottish tales used in this way and it felt both exciting and personal to discover.

For some time in the book there was a distinct focus on the plot that made it difficult to develop as much interest in some of the characters as I could have.

From the moment I picked this book up and read the first few pages I knew that it would be Ailsa.
