Book Description

28 Aug 2007
Scotland, July 1746: an army of occupation ravages the Highlands, committing atrocities with consequences that will reverberate across generations. From this bloody cataclysm, the hardened professional soldier Mordaunt saves an infant who becomes his heiress and his obsession: on his shattered estate, a traumatised Franco-Scottish laird, Ewen Stirling, offers protection to a boy damaged by unspeakable horror. These lives, fatally bound, unfold against the turbulence of the eighteenth century, in a magnificent, uncompromising saga of love and the human cost of war.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real keeper 21 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful epic, sweeping from the Highlands of Scotland after the '45 to the sugar plantations of Jamaica just before the War of Independence. I thoroughly recommend this book, for it's riveting saga, capturing so many major events in the 18th century, to it's beautifully crafted writing style. If you are even remotely interested in the life and times of Scotland after Culloden, get this book.

Format:Paperback
'Coronach' possesses an uncommon quality of writing once referred to as "Literature". With a plot as rich as Dickens, and mood reminiscent of Hardy, this is a rare and powerful novel that satisfies. Comparable to the great Victorian and Russian writers of yesteryear, "Coronach" is a banquet in a world of contemporary "junk food" offerings. Reeman's use of the English language is no less astounding and I fear she has forgotten more words than most of today's scribblers have ever learned. Well written, well researched, this is a brilliant book! The pages practically turned themselves, and I eagerly await Kim Jordan Reeman's next novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for the Squeanish 10 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only reason for the one star is that there doesn't seem to be a facility for awarding zero stars.

I can't recall ever before not finishing a book due to my revulsion at the sheer, bloody, monstrous violence it depicts. I made it to page 80 before deciding that page after page of unremitting rape and pillage, torture and flagellation was not for me. I'd met a great number of characters but seen little sign that any of them might demonstrate any redeeming features if I kept on reading.

OK, the story was about a war and war isn't pleasant or pretty; but I didn't need every act of the licentious soldiery depicted in such graphic detail. The words 'gross' and 'gruesome' sum up the first tenth of the book and I found it revolting. Sorry, Mrs Reeman; you obviously did a lot of meticulous research. What a pity to drown it in blood and faeces to the detriment of character and plot development.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book of the month for October! 15 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback
I got hold of a review copy of this book and it is fantastic! So good that it is book of the month for October on the Struggling Authors website! How about that for a debut novel. If you have friends or relatives who are interested in history and love a good read - earn yourselves some brownie points and get them this book. (Or else you could add it to your wish list...)

4.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Book 24 Sep 2007
Format:Paperback
This is an amazing book which takes on a very broad sweep of Scottish history, starting from the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and the bloody aftermath. It pulls no punches here.

Perhaps a bit too long, but a fascinating book and the writing is terrific.

2.0 out of 5 stars I struggled... 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too many threads meant I sometimes needed to refer back as to who was who, and who had done what to who. Also, were there really so many homosexuals in the 1700's? It seemed unlikely that every thread had some male rapist hanging around. Good backdrop though, and a readable style.
