A HEART OF STONE is a riveting novel which tells the compelling story of two people who must overcome challenges and cross the sea to be together. The story first takes place in Scotland. Sean Wicklow arrives at the estate of his sister, Megan, and her husband Angus MacFarland to mend the breach in their relationship that has existed for many years. When Sean arrives, he finds that the MacFarland estate has been raided and devastated by outlaws, who have burned the manor house and town. They have left nothing behind but a small child, named Jane.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Growing up in Massachusetts, the American Revolution was always a part of Jean’s upbringing.
