A vivid and soaring story of love

It’s been a while since I’ve read an historical romance. Parris Afton Bonds’ THE CALLING OF THE CLAN: Book II pulled me right back into the genre with her lyrical writing, astonishing setting, and vibrant characters. "Her almost inaudible sigh was the lonely wind on the many dark nights he had lain alone." Oh, how I loved that line.

The spellbinding tale, which takes place during the Revolutionary War, ensorcelled me from the first. Set in North Carolina, with vivid settings and era elements, brought alive the tale of Jacob and Catriona. The pair, as different as salt and sugar, forge a great love that warmed my heart and enlivened my mind. I was crazy about the backwoodsman and his noble Scottish lass, and how Parris Bonds enhanced them with fabulous historical detail. Their path, fraught with death and danger, as well as conflict and intimacy, squeezed my heart.

An author of more than 40 novels, Parris Afton Bonds reminded me how an exceptional writer can wring emotion and truth from her prose.. 

A book very much worthy of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
