Monday comes around so quickly. Here’s something to brighten the day- an excerpt from Lane McFarland’s Elsbeth.
With the purpose of his visit once again foremost in his mind, he stepped forward.
“I know it’s late,” he shouted into the pounding wind. “Ye and the other sisters are in danger. We were on our way to escort ye to safety when the storm began.”
“Escort us to safety?” Clutching the gown, she straightened; her brow scrunched in a frown. She stepped back into the foyer and motioned them forward. “Come in.”
Elsbeth MacDougall recoils at the violent Scottish rebellion and the bleak plight of orphans. Vowing to protect the homeless, she embarks on a journey to Scone and sets her course to become a nun, sheltering children from the cruelties of war. But when Brandon McLeod arrives at the Abbey, he shakes her convictions and stirs provoking emotions she buried long ago.
After English soldiers murder his family, Brandon McLeod determines a course of revenge and leads numerous clans in Scotland’s fight for freedom. Bent on the annihilation of English oppression, he is resolved to a life of solitude, vowing never to marry and chance the pain of losing loved ones again. However, that was before he met the enchanting Elsbeth.
