"The Winter Sea" was a thoroughly enjoyable read for the most part, although there were times when I skipped heavy paragraphs full of information. However, the historical detail and the dual plot lines captured my attention and had me quickly turning the pages despite the length of the novel.

At first I wasn't that enamoured with the 1700s story of Sophia but as the drama intensified I found myself becoming totally engrossed with the characters and the Jacobite uprising. Sophia's story was both joyful and tragic, lyrical and haunting, and I ended up liking her story more than modern-day Carrie's, although I still enjoyed hers as well. It just wasn't as compelling as Sophia's nor did it make me cry, but I did appreciate the author's skill in weaving the two tales together. ( )

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley is a reprint of a book first published in 2008. There have been several editions since then, including the one I discovered that I own which was published last year by Source Books. The version I read for review purposes is published by Simon and Schuster on January 5, 2021, and has a new cover. It looks to be available in both e-book editions and a trade paperback edition. The story moves between 1707/1708 Scotland and present-day Scotland. Present-day author Carrie Mclelland writes historical fiction and is struggling to come up with a point of view for her latest novel that explores an attempt by King James to claim the throne. When she discovers that an ancestor of hers, Sophia Paterson visited Slaine Castle at the time she is writing about, the story begins to write itself almost as if she is channelling her ancestor. I enjoyed the story very much and highly recommend reading it for both the romances in the past and the present that seem to echo each other.

This was another wonderful love story by Susanna Kearsley. Author Carrie McClelland has come to Scotland to discuss her new book with her agent. But an unexpected detour on the road makes for a detour in the plot of her story and in her life too.

Carrie was intending to write about the 1708 failed Jacobite attempt to restore the exiled James Stewart to his throne. When she sees Slains Castle, she knows that she has to change the focus of her story. She needs a new main character and names her for an ancestor of hers. Little does she know that she is channeling genetic memory as she writes about her ancestor's life and love.

Meanwhile, Carrie is having a romance of her own with the son of her new landlord. Graham is a lecturer in history at the University in Aberdeen. But Carrie first met his brother Stuart on the airplane when she came from France and he would like a relationship with her too.

I loved the way the story switched back and forth from 1708 to the present and the way the stories paralleled each other. The writing was lyrical and very emotional. Some things brought me to tears despite having read the second book about Slains Castle first and knowing what the author had in store for these characters.

I really enjoyed the narration by Rosalyn Landor who deftly handled the accents and the emotions of this story. I can easily see that this will be a book to reread and savor again and again. ( )

The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley is a historical romance about a modern day author, Caroline (Carrie) who comes to Scotland to write a historical fiction novel concerning the 1708 Jacobite Rebellion. We are in actuality given two settings, that of modern day Scotland with Carrie and travelling back time to 1708 Scotland with Sophia, a dependent of the countess of Slains Castle, and main character of the book that Carrie writing. The time lines are intermingled throughout the book, but easily kept straight.

The bridge between these two women is found in Carrie’s family history. There is an ancestral connection between Carrie and Sophia, and this physic link enables Carrie to deliver more fact than fiction in her writing as she is literally able to see and experience Sophia’s life. There are romantic complications for both women, but I actually never felt all that connected to the romance angle in this book.

The book was a little slow to get going but the author keeps a firm rein on her historical facts and research and the insertion of real historic characters give the story authenticity. The author uses fate, destiny and genetic memory to twine these stories together, and overall I think it worked well. The Winter Sea is a well written novel of history and romance that was quite satisfying to read. ( )

Come home! The year has left you old;
Leave those grey stones; wrap close this shawl
Around you for the night is cold;
Come home! He will not hear you call;

No sign awaits you here but the beat
Of tides upon the strand,
The craig's gaunt shadow with gull's feet
Imprinted on the sand,
And spars and sea-weed strewn
Under a pale moon.

Come home! He will not hear you call;
Only the night winds answer as they fall
Along the shore, 
and evermore
Only the sea-shells 
On the grey stones singing,
And the white foam-bells
On the North Sea ringing.
-E.J. Pratt, "On the Shore"
