    A Desperate Fortune: A Historical Fiction Treasure

    Susanna Kearsley's latest tells us the modern story of Sarah and the 16th c. story of Mary, both joined through a cryptic diary of intrigue and secrets. Sarah, mildly autistic and brilliantly gifted in cryptography meets Mary Dundas the diary's writer and gifted storyteller. Mary's story of secrets and intrigue in support of King James in exile and ultimately with her growing love of her bodyguard, Mr. M, a mercenary Highlander draws Sarah in. Sarah finds she herself grows and changes as she comes to admire Mary's courage and strength. And Sarah takes a chance at finding lasting love and trust herself. Kearsley never disappoints, but this newest novel is a gift of history and mythology, supportive relationships, overcoming obstacles, and finding purpose. Truly a great read!

    An amazing read!

    I have loved all 3 of the Slains novels. I even traveled to Scotland and visited Slains and all he other areas listed in the books. Kearsley has woven some amazingly beautiful tales that captivate and hold you until the very end. This will not disappoint you!

    Another wonderful read from Ms. Kearsley

    I will read anything by Ms. Kearsley. Guaranteed a great read. Not quite as good as Winter Sea, and The Rose Garden. But, still a story that will pull you in.
