Publisher's Description

In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1565, superstition and treachery threaten a truce between rival clans. It's a weak truce at first, bound only by an arranged engagement between Anne MacGregor and Niall Campbell-the heirs of the feuding families. While Niall wrestles with his suspicions about a traitor in his clan, Anne's actions do not go unnoticed. And as accusations of witchcraft abound, the strong and sometimes callous Campbell heir must fight for Anne's safety among disconcerted clan members. Meanwhile his own safety in threatened with the ever-present threat of someone who wants him dead. Will Niall discover the traitor's identity in time? Can Anne find a way to fit into her new surroundings? Will the two learn to love each other despite the conflict? With a perfect mix of a burgeoning romance and thrilling suspense, this book is historical fiction at its best.

    Definitely the strongest in the series. I love the stubborn characters that try to resist falling in love with each other...makes for a semi-comical yet very seriously romantic story. Can't help but love the little slice of Scottish life either. A definite candidate for a re-read in the future.

    This is my first experience reading Kathleen Morgan and I loved this series. Yes, the attraction between the characters is physical, but grows into something deep and true. And there is no indecency. With a 16th century setting, I would expect such behavior. Can't compare to Janette Oke's books which are set in a different time- and I love her books too! Historical fiction must keep true to the time and place.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Kathleen Morgan

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Writing is my second career; my first was nursing. I graduated from the University of Maryland with my bachelor's of science in nursing, became an Army nurse for many years, and spent time in Germany as well as Korea, in addition to Washington, D.C., Texas, California, and Alabama. Ended up marrying an Army helicopter pilot, had two children, and finally settled down in Colorado. Began my writing career while the boys were still little, and sold initially in the general romance market.
When my youngest son died in 1996, I took a long, hard look at my life and where I now wanted my writing to go, and finally decided I was now being called to write for the Christian fiction market. CHILD OF THE MIST is my ninth book published for the Christian fiction market, with GIVER OF ROSES, my tenth book and first Christian fantasy, coming out in August 2005.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  CHILD OF THE MIST was originally published in the general romance market and first came out in 1993. I was finally able to get the rights back on most of the books I wrote in my earlier years, and decided at that time to revise CHILD OF THE MIST for the Christian market. I was surprised how easy it really was to do, but then I've always written books about courage and love and people trying to do the right thing, so the bones of a good Christian story had always been there. And I must confess, I've a particular love for historicals set in the Scottish Highlands, too. Well, and then there were some characters in CHILD OF THE MIST who had been crying out for their own stories ever since I first wrote the book back in 1993 too.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  When I first began reading in the Christian fiction market, a good friend directed me to Francine River's books. When I read them, I knew exactly what kind of stories I wanted to tell. Since then, I've read tons of other excellent Christian authors, like Lisa Samson, Kathy Tyers, Randy Ingermanson, Patricia Hickman, Karen Hancock, Angela Hunt, and Donita K. Paul to name just a few. I am so impressed with the quality writing of Christian fiction authors today, people who rival and frequently exceed what's out there in the general fiction market. We have come such a long way, and anyone who tells you differently hasn't read any of the new books that've come out in the last several years. But isn't how that always is-- those who don't know yell the loudest?

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  CHILD OF THE MIST is book one in the "These Highland Hills" series. Book two, WINGS OF MORNING (to be released in February 2006), and book three (currently unnamed, however, will be brand new, never before published stories. I won't give away who those next two books will be about, but instead let the reader try and guess as they read CHILD OF THE MIST.
