Synopsis

Marcella Conner loves her high school students. They fill the days of loneliness after tragedy visits and a marriage fails. She escapes the present when teaching England's noted authors such as Shakespeare, and Chaucer. She is fascinated by the verses of Scotland's poet laureate Robert Burns. Her wish is that perhaps one day she can visit Burns' homeland to roam the hillsides where he received the inspiration to pen the words that brought him national fame. Why not? After a difficult year, she needs a vacation.

Robert MacKerra's peaceful outing of fishing at the loch is rudely interrupted when a young woman suddenly appears from the ruins of a castle to ask for directions back to her home. She seems addled and is dressed in a garb like he has never seen. He has no idea where Florida is and assures her it is nowhere in his region near the banks of Scotland's Loch Doon.

Marcella is torn between locating the portal to return her to her century or remaining in the 17th century because of the attraction to the handsome Scot. Robert worries daily at any moment the forces that brought her to him will as quickly snatch her away. But, lest we forget, fate has the final word.

Portal to Loch Doon
January 17th, 2015
Sweet romance, good and unusual time travel portal. Characters well drawn. Found references to distance being measured by kilometers in late 1600s rather than measured by half day or most of a morning to stop flow of storeyline momentarily. However, i would read this author again despite that.

Useless preview

I have no idea if this is a good book or not. The preview is just the dedication. The point of a preview us to see if you like the "voice" of the book. I won't be buying the book based on this sample.

I found this to be a pleasant story with the main focus on adapting to a time-travel event. The effort to have the Scottish characters speak with a bit of Scots language mixed in worked well. I was bothered by having a 17th century Scot use kilometers ( about 200 years before the term was invented and in a land that still uses miles). That was not a big issue.
