The Lady of the Lakes, The True Love Story of Sir Walter Scott by Josi S. Kilpack, Blog Tour

Book Summary:

One is his first love.
The other is his best love.
Which will be Walter’s true love?

Walter Scott has three passions: Scotland, poetry, and Mina Stuart. Though she is young and they are from different stations in society, Walter is certain their love is meant to be. For years, he has courted her through love letters. She is the sunshine of his soul.

Though Mina shares Walter’s love of literature and romantic temperament, it’s hard for her to know if she truly loves him or if she has only been dazzled by his flattery. When she meets the handsome and charming William Forbes, her heart is challenged. Who will she choose?

But as every poet knows, “the course of true love never did run smooth,” and on a windy morning in the lake country, Walter meets Charlotte.

At twenty-six, Charlotte Carpenter believes she will never find love. After all, she is a Catholic-born Frenchwoman living in London with a family history shadowed by scandal. Though quiet, practical, and determined to live a life of independence, her heart longs for someone to love her and a place to call home.

Passion and promises collide as Walter, Mina, and Charlotte must each decide the course for their futures. What are they each willing to risk to find love and be loved in return?

My Review:

Kilpack transported me straight to Scotland and then immediately immersed me in the history and culture of the land. This historically based novel was interesting and informative along with the romance story of Sir Walter Scott. I enjoyed that Kilpack changed the perspective from each main character. It allowed me to understand what each person was feeling and thinking instead of inferring it from another character's POV. I felt like I really got to know Walter and how he felt and thought. This is a very different genre for Kilpack to write and I felt like she did a wonderful job with a newer genre. From the beginning to the end Kilpack will have you rooting for Walter! Discover the true love story of Sir Walter Scott for yourself in this wonderful novel based on his own love story!

Happy Reading!!!
