Publisher's Summary

When best-selling author Carrie McClelland visits the windswept ruins of Slains Castle, she is enchanted by the stark and beautiful Scottish landscape. The area is strangely familiar to her but she puts aside her faint sense of unease to begin her new novel, using the castle as her setting, and one of her own ancestors, Sophia, as her heroine.

Then Carrie realizes her writing is taking on a life of its own and the lines between fact and fiction become increasingly blurred. As Sophia's memories draw Carrie more deeply into the intrigue of 1708, she discovers a captivating love story lost in time.

After 300 years, 'Sophia's Secret' must be told.

wonderful- lost myself in the past

As with all her books this is wonderful. My second favourite after Marianna. Her heroine and hero are well developed.

Great and monotone narrator

I loved the story; sweet and genuine. (I cannot vouch for the Scottish). However, the narrator is kind of monotone AND then suddenly there is flow and nice melody to the narration. So mixed feelings :)

Loved the book! And Rosalyn Landor is the best!!!

The book was beautifully written, my first by the author actually, I only decided to listen because it was narrated by Rosalyn Landor who is my favourite. Now I hear they have changed the title of the book, ans also changed the narrator! Big mistake!!! Nobody can bring the characters to life as Rosalyn Landor! I hope the author uses her voice in more of her books. Overall, a lovely, heart-touching love story, superbly narrated!

The winter sea

I have not read any of Susanna Kearsleys’s books before. This book The winter sea was absolutely remarkable and I loved it.
It reminded me of the history and amazement of Diana Gabaldons Outlander series and also of Elizabeth Erskines Lady of Hay in parts.
The reader, Rosalyn Landon, was as usual at her best ( she is my favourite narrator) and her voices contributed exceptionally well with the story!
This book is without doubt going to be in my top ten books.
If you like reading historic novels with a romance woven into the story line
Then this book is for you.
I thoroughly recommend it!!
I shall be looking for more books written by this author.

Stunning and Beautiful

a beautifully written historical love story, heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. I did not want it to end and now it has i doubt I will find anything as good again. Narrated in a style that was so easy to listen to and compelled you to fall in love with the characters. I was transported to a different time.

Excellent story

One of the most interesting and historically accurate books I have read in a while. The story grabbed you instantly, the narrator was excellent, so easy to listen to and the book left you wanting more. Great read.

Too many accents

I did enjoy the story of this book but you really have to listen as it moves back and forth in time with all these rolling Scottish accents that all sounded the same. I found it confusing !

FABULOUSLY ADDICTIVE

Absolutely loved this book from the minute I started listening to it. Loved all the characters and the storyline. It just flowed from beginning to end. If I was READING the book I don't think I would have been able to put it down. I am now a fan of Susanna Kearsley ! Thank you for such a wonderful story, which enthralled and gripped me.

Narration terrible

Terrible narration, couldn't get into the story as it was so badly read. I'm pretty sure the book was badly written as well but I gave up.
