In 1770, Wylie Macpherson has returned to Badenoch, Scotland with his sons, Will and Dougal, after being labeled a traitor twenty-five years ago. Now, he carries a pardon with him. Even so, he doesn't plan to stay long and he has no intention of taking his sons with him. Yet, plans change as he learns he is the new Macpherson of Glencorach and has quite a bit of debt. Anna Macrae, daughter of the factor Alan Macrae, is the unfortunate one to inform him and becomes the unofficial caretaker of Wylie, Will, and Dougal. Her heart has always burned for Wylie, but now it burns in a new way for his sons. They're in desperate need of a parent and Wylie is too engulfed in himself to notice. She begins to dedicate her life to them and her ailing father. Will Wylie be able to build a life with what he now has or will he run again?
From the very beginning of A Thimbleful of Honor by Linda Lee Graham, I was pulled into the story. The beginning of the book starts by providing much-needed background information, such as the political feud in the mid-1700s between the Stuart supporters and Hanoverians in the hills of Scotland. It sets the scene before letting loose. I was filled with a torrent of emotions and had to keep reading. The imagery and wealth of feeling were glorious to read. I was also particularly appreciative of the work and research that went into writing this book. It wasn't just a generic Highland romance. It had a setting with real places and relevant events. While I do enjoy throwing myself into a Scottish romance, it is nice to read something steeped in truth.
