Catherine Coulter’s THE SCOTTISH BRIDE – Utterly Charming Regency Love Story of an English Vicar and Scottish Lass
Set in 1815 in England and Scotland, this is the story of Rev. Tysen Sherbrooke, an English vicar and a widower with 3 young children, who at 31 is told he has inherited a title in Scotland. His 10-year-old daughter, Meggie, decides she must go with him so she sneaks on the carriage dressed as a boy.
In Scotland, Tysen encounters Mary Rose, a courageous young woman whose uncle would give her to an unworthy man. And Tysen is not about to let that happen.
Tysen and his 10-year-old daughter Meggie (who is going on 30) are both charming. I loved their dialog, his thinking and Meggie knowing it all. Mary Rose is illegitimate, which seems to matter to those in Scotland but not at all to Tysen.
It’s a well-told tale, cleverly written and utterly charming. It will keep you turning pages.
