Island Harp Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Island Harp

This is a tale of the potato famine hitting the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland during the sheep clearances and the unbreakable spirit of a woman determined to preserve the people of her clan and their way of life. More historical than romance, it still gives you a haunting tale of a poor lass loving the lord of the manor when his life is bound to another.
