Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca knows nothing of Keller. But he’s known about her for a very long time, and now he wants to destroy her.
This is the story of two families. One living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families’ paths are destined to cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?
This was not an easy novel for me to read. The universal point of view generally alternated between the two major characters with other scenes added. The plot technique was one of revealing necessary background information through flashbacks and memories. All of that made the progression of the plot quite difficult to follow. It was not until well over halfway through the novel that I understood enough of what was going on to even want to finish it. I really did not appreciate the sex scenes nor the foul language and they did not seem necessary to the plot.
I have some general issues with the plot too. I can't mention specifics without giving away some of the twists in the plot. What the authorities did early on with the people involved just did not seem like a real possibility. That some people knew the secrets and others did not just didn't seem plausible. And the ending was odd and didn't seem to fit the rest of the plot nor the previous character actions. It just ended when there were so many questions about people and relationships that were left hanging.
Readers who like a complex plot that is revealed in pieces and from a variety of people may enjoy this novel. Readers looking for a good deal of suspense will have to look elsewhere.

Read an excerpt:
Jenny is a novelist, screenplay writer and playwright. After a series of 'proper jobs', she realised she was living someone else's life and escaped to Gascony to make gîtes. Knee deep in cement and pregnant, Jenny was happy. Then autism and a distracted spine surgeon wiped out the order. Returned to wonderful England, to write her socks off.
Jenny would like to see the Northern Lights but worries that’s the best bit and should be saved till last. Very happily, and gratefully, settled with family.
She tries not to take herself too seriously.
