It takes the eyes of a beautiful deaf girl to see past the years of hatred to the actual people involved underneath.
Eveline Armstrong is forced by the king to marry the laird of their bitter enemy's clan, Graeme Montgomery in an attempt to bring about peace between the clans.
A riding accident took her hearing but not her beauty or her common sense. Graeme very quickly learns that his new wife is a gentle kindhearted woman who is not responsible in any way for sins of the past. His brothers soon see the wisdom and righteousness of his view.
It takes several near death experiences and a previously unknown enemy to bring both clans into the same way of thinking.
With touches of humour, passion, intellegence and determination, Banks unwinds another great novel from the rocky land of Scotland in historic times. Recommended to Highland romance readers and Banks followers.
