Summary
Though divided by centuries, two women -- a Jacobite exile and an amateur codebreaker -- are united in a quest to discover the limits of trust and the unlikely coincidences of fate
Summary
While transcribing an old manuscript of a young girl’s diary, Sara decodes an account of Jacobite spies. Long before, Mary Dundas gets involved in a mission which makes her confidante to the King of Scotland in exile. And along the way, both women fall for men they know little about. Kearsley is a master at seamlessly blending stories from two time periods. Readers who enjoy a little puzzle solving with their historical fiction will be rewarded. -- Kimberly McGee for LibraryReads
