Yes, my daughter also has epilepsy. She also has a genetic disorder that causes temporary paralysis, epileptic type episodes, and other "symptoms". I appreciate the author writing this story in honour of her daughter. It matters.
I liked the story idea, but the writing needs work.
Twenty years later Serena Boyd has fallen out of a cart and is injured. Gavin MacKenzie and his brother Leith come to the aid of a mother and daughter. Serena has struck her head and Gavin takes her home. They live in a village of outcasts, their home a hovel with dirt floors but Gavin is taken with this young girl.
Gavin is the eldest son of a chieftain, Leith the younger son, they have come to the Braigh Castle to do a repair job on the castle and to find out who killed the former laird of the castle. Leith needs to prove himself as the leader of his men since his brother will become the next chieftain.
Serena keeps the castle running smooth and is a woman her laird would marry if she would consent. She fears her secret will get out and that she will be burned at the stake. She can trust no one.
When her nursemaid becomes ill, Gavin takes her to the near by village to buy medicine for her. There she has a seizure, the woman selling herbs declares her demon possessed and the village comes after them. Gavin does everything in his power to protect her but things are taken out of his hands.
Serena's father is the man that the church call to remove the demon. It is an intriguing story and I'm sure you will enjoy it. You may find it on Amazon. God bless you all.Highland Sanctuary
I have not read the book called " Highland Blessings" but now I find I am interested in reading it. Two of the people were in this book ( Akira and Bryce) and it was also mentioned at the back of this book.
Loved these characters:
Cara Grant, Serena's best friend
Phelan, the village wolf dog and faithful companion to Quinn
Gunna, the maidservant
the outcasts of the village
the King (who shows up JUST in time)
Gavin and his family
I knew exactly what Serena's mother planned at the end and my heart broke :)
I was very surprised at how superstitious most people are in this story, but it made sense. I probably rolled my eyes at most of their reactions, LOVED it when Gavin punched that guy, and despite the sadness of certain people who sacrificed themselves (beautifully written), i truly enjoyed how justice is served at the end. Serena annoyed me slightly with her resistance to Gavin, but again it made sense why she did so. I truly enjoyed Highland Sanctuary and look forward to reading more of Taylor's books!!
