KING'S ACRE continues the entrancing story of the Grants of Rothiedrum Aberdeenshire, that began with KING'S CROFT.
Evelyn Grant has started to come to terms with the loss of her first love, Johnny, but the Grant family are overshadowed by the unwelcome reappearance of a figure from Jamie's past and by the terrible stories of the war told by soldiers returning from the trenches.
Among those fighting for King and Country is Gillan Forbes, the son of the big house, on whose friendship Evelyn increasingly relies and who still hopes to win her love. But it is handsome Gordon Highlander, Davie Grainger, who captures Evelyn's heart, sweeping her up in a whirlwind of passion that takes her to the heights of happiness and to the depths of despair . . . Davie is a dangerous man to love . . .
