KIRKUS REVIEW

An 18th century gothic set mainly in Scotland where all the familiar elements appear and disappear with last week's barley in the broth. Elizabeth, raised in the American colonies, lands there to toil in the kitchen of Bowain Castle where her father had been a servant. But a fleeing Bonnie Prince Charlie and her American intended turn up; there are attempts on her life and some genealogical surprises along with something truly terrible in that old tower. Active enough for Johnston's sedentary readership.
