    In 1847 Marquis Dr. Reilly Stanton leaves London and a lucrative practice to accept the job of physician in Lyming on the Isle of Skye off the Scottish coast. Reilly needs to prove to his former fiancee Christine King that he is not a worthless chronic drunk. On the isle, Reilly meets the local amazon Brenna Donnegal who has provided medical services in the absence of her father, a physician.

    Lord Glendenning wants to marry Brenna and tries to force Reilly into helping him. The debauched aristocrat simply wants Brenna so impoverished, she has no choice but to wed him. Instead, Reilly not only admires his rival, he falls in love with her.

    LADY OF SKYE is an entertaining Victorian romance that readers of historicals will fully enjoy. The story line is crisp, tense, and often amusing. Except for a wee bit too much to drink, Reilly is a heroic individual and Brenna is a role model of the assertive woman not afraid to compete with males (perhaps a century and a half before her time but only a purist will care). Patricia Cabot provides her audience with a delightful novel that brings the mid nineteenth century vividly alive.
