Warner, Sep 2004, 5.99, 384 pp.
In 1332 Scotland, Amica MacLean and Magnus Mackinnon marry by proxy. For Amica this is what she always wanted as she has loved Magnus since she was a little girl. However, when Magnus arrives two weeks later he still in shock and feeling guilty for surviving the Dupplin Moor massacre. He is furious to learn what his father did. He becomes irate, insisting his new bride go home as he will annul the marriage that he has no plans to consummate.
Amica realizes that her spouse is suffering from more than just battle fatigue syndrome as he also feels culpable for living and has no plans to do so. As she begins to heal him, she works her way into his heart. However, an unknown assailant does not want this marriage to work as that individual wants the two clans at war, which would leave this miscreant as the only winner.
This engaging fourteenth century Scottish romance stars a lead male protagonist who simply has given up on living due to feeling guilt from the surviving carnage of his countrymen. Amica is a fine patient person who believes she can nurture her beloved back to health.
