Synopsis of book»

Winner of the RT Book Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Historical Fiction Novel

Shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Novel of the Year Award

Selected by Woman & Home as one of the 5 Best Time-Slip Novels (together with The Time Traveller's Wife, Labyrinth, The Return and A Secret Alchemy)

Carolyn McClelland, a writer of historical novels, finds herself with a familiar enemy; writer’s block. A change of scenery leads her, and her book, in a whole new direction. Writing about the attempted Jacobite invasion of 1707, Carolyn takes up residence in a cottage in Edinburgh.  Inexplicably drawn to Slains Castle, and not so inexplicably drawn to the charming, but somehow familiar, Stuart Keith, Carolyn is soon writing with an unusual speed and imagery which leads her to wonder whether her ‘fictional’ character of Sophia is really so fictional after all.
Carolyn soon realises that she is somehow channelling the memories of her distant relative and that her story has a life of its own.

Published in hardback and the US as The Winter Sea
