In Forgiven Not Forgotten by Susan Leigh Furlong, Rory Campbell is a headstrong young man who should not pursue the MacDonald girl. But Rory always goes for what he wants, no matter what. Joneta MacDonald has never met anyone like Rory and falls in love with him immediately, refusing to marry the man her family has chosen for her. Because of their clan rivalry, they can only meet clandestinely and write letters. They secretly marry and plan to flee together. These plans, however, are cut short, and Rory finds himself about to be hanged for a heinous crime committed by the Campbell clan against the MacDonalds.
