One is his first love.
The other is his best love.
Which will be Walter’s true love?
Walter Scott has three passions: Scotland, poetry, and Mina Stuart. Though she is young and they are from different stations in society, Walter is certain their love is meant to be. For years, he has courted her through love letters. She is the sunshine of his soul.
Though Mina shares Walter’s love of literature and romantic temperament, it’s hard for her to know if she truly loves him or if she has only been dazzled by his flattery. When she meets the handsome and charming William Forbes, her heart is challenged. Who will she choose?
But as every poet knows, “the course of true love never did run smooth,” and on a windy morning in the lake country, Walter meets Charlotte.
At twenty-six, Charlotte Carpenter believes she will never find love. After all, she is a Catholic-born Frenchwoman living in London with a family history shadowed by scandal. Though quiet, practical, and determined to live a life of independence, her heart longs for someone to love her and a place to call home.
Passion and promises collide as Walter, Mina, and Charlotte must each decide the course for their futures. What are they each willing to risk to find love and be loved in return?
THE LADY OF THE LAKES by Josi S. Kilpack is the emotional, heartfelt, and true love story of Sir Walter Scott in the Eighteenth Century. Packed with beautiful description, the Scottish landscape and society at that time, springs to life and really makes the reader feel like they are there witnessing it all. But the most important and compelling part of this tale is Walter and his romantic ideals of love. Smitten at first sight with Mina, he plans his whole future with her at the centre, even though they had barely spent any real quality time together over their friendship. While his ardour grows stronger by their separation, Mina doubts what she feels for him, and when another, more suitable suitor is presented to her, she realises that she cares about Walter but not in the way that he wants. Devastated, Walter's romantic heart suffers greatly. But when he meets Charlotte Carpenter she opens up his damaged soul and shows him light in the darkness. Charlotte has had her own trials throughout her life and is content to live a life of independence and solitude. But when Walter enters her world, the possibility of love and a family are within her reach. But she will be second in no man's heart. Can Walter really leave his past behind him? Can they discover a deep and everlasting love together? THE LADY OF THE LAKES by Josi. S. Kilpack is a beautiful story of self-discovery and the real meaning of love, and I highly recommend it to all romance and historical fiction fans.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖📖 4.5
Josi S. Kilpack hated to read until her mother handed her a copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond when she was 13. From that day forward, she read everything she could get her hands on and credits her writing “education” to the many novels she has “studied” since then. She began writing her first novel in 1998 and has written twenty-five novels, one cookbook, and been part of multiple collaborations since then. She is a two-time Whitney Award winner and Best of State winner in Fiction. Josi currently lives in Willard, Utah, with her husband and children. For more information:
