    1. Synopsis Harsh Scottish highlands, 1565.Anne MacGregor is a born healer but some people call her a witch and avoid her at all cost until they or somebody from their family gets ill of course Niall Campbell, a seasoned warrior and the next clan leader, is mourning his young wife who has died during childbirth Their clans are enemies they are stealing the cattle from each other, killing people and destroying their chances of survival Normal borderlands cheer Finally Anne s father thinks it cannot [...]

    2. Both the hero and the heroine were idiots, especially the heroine The dialog was horrible The only words the heroine knew apparently, were Och and Wheesht Major eye roller

    3. The basic set up of this story is pretty much the same as any Highland romance with a pair of feuding clans the MacGregors and the Campbells , and a betrothal between the two clans in an effort to restore peace In this case, it s Anne MacGregor who is hand fasted for one year to Niall Campbell Niall s still grieving over his dead wife and not ready for another woman or marriage Oh, and since Anne s such a great healer, she s got a reputation as a witch and the Campbells jump on that as a reason [...]

    4. This book was terrible The writing style needs a severe red pen I could not stand the endless flowery adjectives and adverbs which serve to only reiterate descriptions we are already well aware of It comes off as not only pretentious but like the author has no trust in her readers to imagine a scene without having every little detail described to them for the tenth time.The actual plot could be distilled down to a few pages Everything was so predictable Deus ex Machina to the MAX Here s a hint t [...]

    5. Morgan had a good idea, researched it well, and gave the reader a good sense of the period Two things worked against her tale her characters acted like twenty first century high school students than seventh century clan leaders clueless and driven by their gonads rather than their brains, and for a supposed bunch of Christians they seldom actually prayed or sought divine guidance, perhaps because they were so busy making matters worse by their own pig headedness.Not bad, but not good either Dis [...]

    6. Child Of The Mist by Kathleen Morgan is the beginning of the These Highland Hills Trilogy, and a well written book and not what i expected The heroine, Anne MacGregor, is a suspected witch who finds her self unexpectedly hand fasted to the tanist soon to be chieftain, Niall Campbell to stop bloodshed between two of the fighting clans I normally don t like widowed hero s because i don t like the idea of a man whose meant to be mourning his late wife but is now in love with someone else so i kinda [...]

    7. Child of the Mist is a well written romance that takes place in 15th century Scotland The MacGregors and the Campbells have fought one another for years Alastair MacGregor wants peace and realizes the only way to get it is to have his oldest daughter Anne marry the son of the Campbell, Niall, who s next in line to lead his clan Niall Campbell who s also tired of the fighting agrees but not to marriage but to Handfast Alastair agrees Niall assures Anne that he would not take advantage of her duri [...]

    8. I have so many mixed feelings about this novel and I need to write them down On one hand, it was very enjoyable I wasn t expecting anything super original, as I am familiar with the plot s formula Feuding clans are united through a forced marraige where the daughter is sent away The couple hates each other but learn to love Some conflict occurs in the middle that almost kills the woman but she is saved And happily ever after That said, it s not a crappy rendition of the formula The story was enj [...]

    9. I raced through this book mainly because it was a beautiful day, I had nothing to do and I was able to sit outside and just read I was amazed by how enraptured I was by this book, but if the truth be told it then started to grate on me.I originally bought the book because I didn t realise it was mainly romance but I did think it was about magic Magic really The only magic in this book was the ability to use herbs to treat ailments so that the un intelligent considered this to be witchcraft So ul [...]

    10. This was a free Kindle book and I love historical fiction especially set in Scotland among the clans, so I decided to read it I had high hopes for this book after reading the first quarter of it and am still sad it didn t pan out for me I think it could have been very good, but the characters had such bad judgement and all the emotional tumult just became ridiculous At times I felt I d turned the page and found myself in a ridiculous romance novel with all the ups and downs and stupidity The her [...]

    11. Firstly, I loved this talebut there are some things that grated Americanisms and modernisms in a book set in the 14th century doesn t quite sit well with me.There were words that were invented in the 16th century that she used, they were out of place and made me lift an eyebrow.Now, again, apart from that, I loved it Niall was wonderful, jealous powerful and Anne was stubborn and lovely all the best traits of a pair of Highland heros.The plot was well thought out and excellently executed I will [...]

    12. Like so many of the books that have been in my TBR for a while I don t remember why I added it to the pile any It seemed to have a marriage or betrothal of convenience which is one of my favourite themes so maybe that was it It was only after I had finished it that a friend told me this was Christian fiction, although I can see how that term may be applied to it this is definitely not a story of the preachy sort I never read Inspirationals and had I noticed any preachy messages I would have aban [...]

    13. This is the first book in These Highland Hills series Child of the Mist was hard for me to put down I loved the conflict and attraction between the hero, Niall Campbell, and the heroine, Anne MacGregor Her father pledges her hand in marriage after a one year commitment to seal the promise of peace between their clans But Niall s people believe her to be a witch with her herbal healing powers, and he must constantly strive to protect her and work with his people to accept her, while trying to dis [...]

    14. Another Kindle freebie This book had a lot of potential with it s compelling premise feuding families, an arranged marriage between the heirs as a truce, plus a traitor in the mix, sounds like a recipe for an awesome book But there are a few reasons I didn t give it stars possibly some spoilers ahead well kind of spoilers, I don t feel like I m giving away anything that the book didn t give away on it s own The Scottish Thing Oh I really wish she hadn t done the Scottish thing The dialect was s [...]

    15. don t think I ll be reading the rest of the series FOr a romance novel, there was very little romance there was, however, a whole lot of misogyny I get it, it was a rough period in history and women held different status, but this was a bit much Also, the scenarios were incredibly repetitive Anne makes an independent choice, situation gets scrappy, Niall comes and saves her, Niall Anne fight, he crushes her with some kisses, she objects and then concedes Rinsepeat As commentary to editors just b [...]

    16. Free book on Kindle Yahoo I was excited to read this book because if it s historical setting I fell so in love with Liz Curtis Higgs s Scottish series Eighteen year old Anne MacGregor is the eldest daughter of the chieftain of the MacGregor clan, a clan that has been waging war with the Campbells for nearly ten years With a desire to the long feud, Anne s father, Alastair, handfasts his daughter to the Campbell clan s tanist and heir to the chieftainship, Niall Campbell, in hopes that the two wi [...]

    17. I am normally very non judgmental when it comes to romance novels I don t let small discrepancies in the plot and poorly developed characters upset me, because, well, that s not why I read them I read them for fun, for something to distract me, for a bit of added whimsy this, however, was by far one of the worst maybe it s because it had so much promise the beginning started out pretty well a young girl who may or may not be a witch, a family feud, a hastily arranged handfasting but the heroine [...]

    18. This was free on my nook I read the Barnes and Noble reviews, and decided to go for it I absolutely love the setting I mean the Scottish highlands in the 1500 ss pleaseI m so there I guess I ve been having some good luck with free books lately, because I really enjoyed this one It s about two feuding clans fighting over land and such In order to end the feud and establish peace the clans are joined together with the marriage of one clan chief s daughter to another soon to he clan chief who they [...]

    19. Niall hates to be called a fool but he IS one and it s driving me craaaaaaaazy He could be so wonderful but the author keeps going to the extreme on his blindness in judgment calls his emotions are forever clouding his judgment At this point I wish Iain were to end up chief endrantMost of the way through I was going to give it 4 stars but by the end I was fed up Too many of the situations seemed forced and Niall especially seemed a pawn in the author s hands The outcome was SO obvious, yet he wa [...]

    20. I was going to give this book 2 stars, but since I got drawn into the story enough to read it nonstop for a couple days, I ll grant it 3 I read this book because it was a book group pick but for me it doesn t seem like a book group book, like a guilty pleasure book Although it wasn t always a pleasure to read mostly because the hero and heroine of the book annoyed me how they were always trying to read each other s minds and were always being so selfless, putting the other one first Nice, but i [...]

    21. I thought this book was good I didn t love it because of all the revenge and everything but the love story was good and I LOVED that it was set in Scotland which is a place I want to go some day This book is about two clans that are feuding and to end the feuding the clan leader of one clan and the daughter of the other clan have to marry you will get the quote marks if you read the book and kind of bring the clans together But someone is plotting against them and neither of the two like each ot [...]

    22. Love a good clean arranged marriage story and you add in the Highlands and I am all in This was well written and I was very surprised it fell in the free kindle book page Not your typical free kindle book This is a Christian book without the preaching, it just sticks to the plot and love story It is difficult to create a lot of tension over a span of a book especially when the love interests are living in the same castle but this author did a great job I could tell that this author has probably [...]

    23. This was a Nook freebie and was one of the better free stories I ve read The character development and the general storyline was fast paced and kept me interested The one negative was that it was predictable as far as the main character Anne s story goes I just don t buy the whole I hate him I love him I hate him I love him but he doesn t love me No, he does love me Now I m not sure I hate him I really love him Thing It makes me a bit crazy when writers do this constant battle when really there [...]

    24. It was really interesting to see how something as simple as performing what we know today as CPR could have you branded as a witch in the 1500 s In this wonderful historical fiction book we get a look at the past and how far we ve come.If you are into Scottish history or you just love reading about feuding clans then this is the book for you To create a truce Anne is pledged in marriage to Niall It is not what she desires The one thing that neither of them counted on was falling in love But that [...]

    25. I got this book because it was offered free for Kindle a few months ago I must admit I was happy with it in the end and bought the next two books in the trilogy There were some typical Celtic historical romance characterse brute, the damsel, the manipulator, the religious fanatic The backstory of feuding clans was also typical but even with all of the typical stuff , I enjoyed the book The handfasting tradition was one I really hadn t heard of before and the telling of the story was fast paced e [...]

    26. Predictable historical romance set in 16th century Scotland The two main characters are thrown together against the heroine s will She s a religious woman with healing powers who is naturally suspected of witchcraft There is a power play for control of the hero s clan and every action the heroine takes only serves to make matters worse for the both of them And, of course, until these two realize that they love each other every word they say to each other is misinterpreted by the other.But still, [...]

    27. I m a sucker a well written or at least decently written novel set in the Scottish Highlands I would say this is decently written than well written but I still love it A few things strain credulity, specifically the rapid recovery of one of the protagonists Despite that detractor and a few other minor flaws, I really like this book and recommend it to anyone seeking a light but engaging read set in the Scottish Highlands.

    28. I have liked every one of Kathleen Morgan s Scottish books that I have read When Anne s father requests she honour an arranged mariage with niall, she is not sure but agrees to help him As she travels home with Niall, and comes to know him, she finds herself falling in love with him.

    29. While there wasn t any fantastic literary value here, it was a very enjoyable book and though it was of the same culture found in Diana Gabaldon s Outlander series, it was not as graphic and detestable An enjoyable read, and I m anxious to read of this author.
