As yet almost all of the reviews of this book are only a few lines long. It calls for more, reviving memories of both Shakespeare and Robert Louis Stevenson.
The link to Shakespeare is obvious, but here the taming is by warmth and friendship rather than by grinding down the opposition.
Did you know, though, that Stevenson wrote a novel called Catriona around 1900? Based mainly in Edinburgh this love story is complicated by the fact that neither she no he believes the other will be interested, and so they never manifest their true feelings.
In "Charming…" the young ones' reticence stems from the problems that their clan loyalty calls forth.
Where this book fits in to the Classics scenario is not the subject of this review: but I do say that it was much more fun to read than the works I compare it to, it's historically plausible, and the romantic turn around is sweetly done.

An excellent story capturing the spirit of the times. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys the intrigue and romance of the heroine and her escape from her overbearing brothers.

Very enjoyable plot to arrive at a predictable ending with some enjoyable, if unlikely, twists to make it a fast paced holiday read.
