More About the Author

I have been writing since the early 80's, inspired by a love of old swashbuckling movies. I try to write in a way that a reader can "see" the action and adventure that fills the pages. I live in a small town north of Toronto Ontario, in a quirky Victorian farmhouse with my two pups and a psychotic bird named Kramer. I have one son, Jeffrey, and two fabulous grandchildren who keep me on my toes year by year. I love writing but took eight years off to enjoy my grandchildren and a life that seemed, to that point, to be spent locked away in my little office. Self publishing came along at just the right time, since I was sure I had been all but forgotten. Gaining my rights back, working on the covers, updating the stories has been a wonderful way to step back into a career I hope to continue on in for many years to come.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marsha Canham's fictional account of Lady Anne Farquharson Moy and her contribution to the Jacobite cause in Scotland, (1745), makes for extraordinary reading. The lady and her cause are part of the tragic history of the Scottish uprising with its goal to put Charles Edward Stuart, (Bonnie Prince Charlie), on the throne of Scotland and England. Beginning just before the doomed Battle of Culloden Moor, Ms. Canham sweeps the reader back to 18th century Scotland, with its diverse clans, intrigues, politics, adventure and romance.
Anne's family, the Farquharsons, were fiercely loyal to the Stuarts. Anne, who grew up in staunch Jacobite surroundings, was a strong individual whose brothers had taught to wield a sword and fight. In fact, she was known more for her skills with weapons than with embroidery and book learning. Called "Wild Rhuad Annie," she married refined Angus Moy, chief of Clan Chattan, a man who had been educated on the continent and had little in common with many of Scotland's leaders. He did not want to associate himself or his clan with the Stuart mission. Moy believed from the beginning that the rebellion would fail and didn't want his people to lose their lives or land as a result of Civil War. Therefore he pledged himself to fight with the English.
Anne could not maintain her honor, as a Farquharson, or as Moy's wife, by keeping silent and remaining at home. Armed with a petition that declared her the clan leader in her husband's absence, she called the Jacobite members of the Chattan Clan together and led them into battle. She was their "Colonel Anne," and she made her handsome and gallant clansman, John MacGillivray, her Captain.
This story is quite complex, as are the characters, and Ms.

Relative to space and time in history, Midnight Honor runs concurrently with "The Blood of Roses" but focuses on Anne's life and the events leading up to, during and after the Battle of Culloden as opposed to the focus of Alexander and Catherine, the main characters featured in "The Blood of Roses." Most of the primary characters in Midnight Honor are real life characters. Marsha Canham took some liberties with their personal lives to make the story interesting to those of us who love our romance novels. However, if you check the internet, you will find that the basis for this story was very real, including certain details about Colonel Anne Moy and the fact she took a different side in the battle than her husband. In fact, I've been spending quite a bit of time on wikipedia lately researching what was fact and what is perhaps myth. Marsha Canham is truly unique in the manner in which she uses the details in historical happenings and mixes them with "what if" stories about the real life characters.

Anne Moy was unique, she was beautiful, she was powerful and she had men at her command. It's evident that Scotland was way ahead of society in some ways during this period to allow a woman to participate in the military in the way Anne Moy did. And, although I might have had a hissy fit had the story been about a man who loved two women in the manner Anne seemed to love Angus and John, I actually managed to enjoy this story without feeling any jealousy on behalf of either man. Sadness for John MacGillivray in many ways - yes. Do I have a double standard? Nah, I'm just a woman and it was easier to put myself in Anne's place than it would have been had the roles been reversed.

I'll be reading this book again during the years to come. Right now I'm stuck on Marsha Canham's books and currently reading The Dragon Tree. Another lovely story.

Best Book I've Read, Next to Outlander 14 Jun. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the BEST, most accurate depictions of the Battle of Culloden and the events leading up to the battle that I have read. Ms. Canham has definitely done her research. She uses real-life characters and real-life events, and weaves her heart-wrenching love story into history with a tale that will leave you looking for additional pages at the end of the book. This book is one of the best Scottish historical romances that I've read and definitely rates right up there with Outlander. The only discrepancy that I've found is with the character of "John MacGillivray". His actual name was Alexander MacGillivray and he was apparently ever bit as much a hero as Ms. Canham has illustrated in this book. If you are interested in Scotland, the battles and events leading up to Culloden, the sad, tragic tale of the Battle of '76 and the heroic people of Scotland, along with a truly breath-taking romantic love story, then buy this book!

A True Standout from the Norm 15 May 2001
By Cymraes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've always liked Marsha Canham's writing, so I make an exception to buy all of her books. You can imagine how delighted I was when I found her latest novel on the supermarket shelf.
I wasn't expecting more out of Midnight Honour than any of her other books, but in truth, Midnight Honour was one of the best books I have read in a long time. The plot was different, and there were wonderful characters.
The plot was brilliant, and it was not at all what I was expecting. It begins with the heroine, Lady Anne Moy, already having been married to her husband (the hero, Angus Moy) for four years. That may seem rather odd for a romance novel, but it was a much longed for breath of fresh air. There were no silly "ripping through the maidenhead" scenes and it was nice to see a couple already comfortable with each other but still not perfect.
Have you ever noticed that there are very rairly decent male characters other than the hero in romance novels? Again Ms. Canham's book throughs normality aside. I found myself more in love with Anne's old flame, the dashing John MacGillivray, than I was with scholarly Angus. It was interesting because Anne was really in love with both men, and both men were in love with her. Oh those glourius torn loyalties. The book certainly kept my attention.
Ms. Canham also did not fall victem to the tenancy to add too much historical detail. Her battle scenes were emotional, true to fact, and blessedly short. The heroine, Lady Anne, was a warrior. Ms. Canham is the only author I have ever read who has been able to pull that off. Most the time the warrior heroine is spoiled, ridicoulosly stubborn and obscenely stupid. Lady Anne is none of these, she seems very real throughout the entire story.
Midnight Honour is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and I finished reading it wishing it would never end. Marsha Canham has written a book that steps completaly outside the bounds of ordinary romance novels and comes off wonderfully.

Jacobite Scotland's Extraordinary Heroine And Patriot! 15 Feb. 2004
By Jana L. Perskie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marsha Canham's fictional account of Lady Anne Farquharson Moy and her contribution to the Jacobite cause in Scotland, (1745), makes for extraordinary reading. The lady and her cause are part of the tragic history of the Scottish uprising with its goal to put Charles Edward Stuart, (Bonnie Prince Charlie), on the throne of Scotland and England. Beginning just before the doomed Battle of Culloden Moor, Ms. Canham sweeps the reader back to 18th century Scotland, with its diverse clans, intrigues, politics, adventure and romance.
Anne's family, the Farquharsons, were fiercely loyal to the Stuarts. Anne, who grew up in staunch Jacobite surroundings, was a strong individual whose brothers had taught to wield a sword and fight. In fact, she was known more for her skills with weapons than with embroidery and book learning. Called "Wild Rhuad Annie," she married refined Angus Moy, chief of Clan Chattan, a man who had been educated on the continent and had little in common with many of Scotland's leaders. He did not want to associate himself or his clan with the Stuart mission. Moy believed from the beginning that the rebellion would fail and didn't want his people to lose their lives or land as a result of Civil War. Therefore he pledged himself to fight with the English.
Anne could not maintain her honor, as a Farquharson, or as Moy's wife, by keeping silent and remaining at home. Armed with a petition that declared her the clan leader in her husband's absence, she called the Jacobite members of the Chattan Clan together and led them into battle. She was their "Colonel Anne," and she made her handsome and gallant clansman, John MacGillivray, her Captain.
This story is quite complex, as are the characters, and Ms. Canham has done a remarkable job in fleshing out the people and the issues of the period. Angus Moy's dilemma was very real. He was never meant to be the leader of a clan and was not educated as such. When he found himself suddenly responsible for the lives of so many people he took the responsibility to heart. He may very well have been a Jacobite supporter himself, but was determined to keep his clan safe from the disastrous results of a doomed cause. Anne, who loved her husband, felt shame as she watched him throw in his hand with the despised English. She also knew that, in the heat of the moment, many of her husband's clan wanted to fight for the Stuarts. Anne, with her strong character, did not want to remain in a passive woman's role while the world was exploding around her. She had a cause she believed in and wanted to play a part in history.
Marsha Canham, one of my favorite authors, has outdone herself with this wonderful historical novel. She was fascinated with the Jacobites and historical figures Anne and Angus Moy, John MacGillivray, Gilles MacBean, Lochiel and Alexander Cameron and Fearchar Farquharson. She wrote that researching and writing this novel was a "labor of love." The results provide an incredible glimpse into the past and into the life of a unique and courageous heroine who certainly deserves a story of her own.

The Blood of Roses all over again... 22 Sept. 2004
By ThisThatNEverything - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
After reading The Pride of Lions & The Blood of Roses I was hoping to follow Catherine & Alexander again in this 3rd book. This book follows Angus Moy, Lady Anne & John MacGillivray basically through the exact same events that you already went through in The Blood of Roses. There really weren't any surprises since you'd already been through the battle in the other book & you already knew who lived & who died. In The Blood of Roses I felt very drawn in by all the characters & not just Alex & Catherine so I didn't see why these 3 weren't given a bigger role in the other book (like many others had) which would've eliminated a need for this 3rd book in the series. With about 95% of this book being the march to battle & the actual battle itself that you've already read in The Blood of Roses I see no need for anybody to read this book. I could've got all that I needed by just reading the last 2 chapters. Don't waste your time if you've already read The Blood of Roses.

Remember to exhale 8 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I inhaled this book, getting caught up in all the facets of the passions from early on. The passions of husband/wife, other man/other woman, family/clan, clan/coutry, honor/survival. The historical detail magnifies the emotional and ethical struggles in a period of dark humanity. Bringing "Colonel" Anne MacIntosh and her clan affiliates to vivid life, Ms. Canham has graphically portrayed the conflicts inherent in personal responsibility and accountability.
Well researched, extremely well written. Ms. Canham is always a joy to read. This book especially so. Particularly for any Clan Chattan member or descendent. Remember to exhale. But never forget.
P.S. - Nearly a year later, these characters still haunt me. This book has a permanent place on my shelf and in my heart.
