On the recommendation of RiverFarm, I tracked down 3 novels by Alexandra Raife from a couple of my favorite used book stores. They were: Drumveyn, Wild Highland Home, Until The Spring. I took these, along w/ a bag of various other fiction treats on a recent vacation.
All 3 of these were sweet, romantic, tales of family strife and everyday happenings in small, Scottish towns. The characters all deal w/ romantic conflict, and there is always a happy ending. While I liked these enough to read and finish - I found them just a tad too sweet (for me). Just a tad though – which I found interesting considering some of the similar stories and authors I enjoy.
I will pass these along to a girlfriend who requires that anything she reads ends happily. Thank you, River, for introducing me to this author.
