Clandara - Evelyn Anthony. The twelfth century was just beginning when the first of the Frasers built his fortress at Clandara at the top of the sweeping hillside that overlooked Loch Ness. The grey castle walls were weathered by hundreds of years of biting Highland winds and mellowing suns. It stood like a sentinel above the clear blue waters of the Loch, magnificent yet dwarfed by the majestic purple mountains that rose up behind it, their peaks shrouded in grey mists.

Set in 1745, in the time of feuds between the clans and the Scottish support for Bonnie Prince Charlie, this is the story of Katherine Fraser who falls in love with the eldest son of her family’s enemy—the MacDonalds. James MacDonald had a horrible reputation of cattle stealing, killing and debauchery when he met the lovely, flame-haired Katherine Fraser. For love of her, he changed. Neither family wanted the marriage but agreed to a betrothal when they could see the pair was determined.

Then came Charles Stuart and the call to arms all over Scotland. Having lost all in the earlier rising in 1715, Katherine’s family declined to go. Their enemies, the MacDonalds, were in the forefront of the clans supporting the prince. In one horrible act, James tears asunder the love that bound him to Katherine and sealed forever the enmity between his clan and hers.

This is a poignant love story very well told. Anthony vividly portrays the emotions of the Scots at the time of the Jacobite Uprising of 1745 and her description of the English slaughter of the Scots on Culloden Moor was brilliant and detailed. By the time you get there, you are so invested in the characters and the clans, your heart is racing.

The romance is an unusual one as James and Katherine are separated for much of the story, yet ever in each other’s mind. I loved them both but Katherine really shined as a woman trying to do the right thing under dismal circumstances. The ending is a bit like jumping off a cliff and I found I wanted more of the two of them.

If you like well researched, detailed history in your historical romance, and you can’t get enough of Scotland at this time, then you will love this one. Highly recommended.

Very well written. I could picture the scenes clearly, as if I were there. The farther one reads the book, the harder it is to put down.

I read this book years ago and had always enjoyed Evelyn Anthony's books very much.
This one especially and was very happy to find it on Amazon!

"The twelfth century was just beginning when the first of the Frasers built his great fortress at Clandara at the top of the sweeping hillside that overlooked Loch Ness."

Clandara is set in Scotland during the Jacobite rising of '45, and I won't go into that too much - you either already know your history and don't need another rehash, and those new to it are better off reading for themselves.

The story is focused on two clans with a long, bloody history of hatred and feuds, but that didn't stop James Alexander of the MacDonald clan falling head over heels with Katherine of Clan Fraser. They plan to marry, but things happen to tear the pair of lovers apart.

I won't say more, but while I enjoyed the story immensely, there isn't a likeable person in the lot, expect perhaps Katherine's maidservant Annie. I'd also caution potential readers that these Highlanders are a brutal, blood lot and the violence might be a bit much for the more squeamish readers.

This is the first Highland Romance book I read back in the late 80s. The book was twenty years old even then, having been written in 1963. This may explain why Clandara (along with Highland Rose by Catherine Linden) tops my "Favorite Highland Historical Romances" list and is in my top 10 list of "All Time Favorite Books". I have come to realize that I like this style of writing best. This was a writing era where there was as much historical detail as there was romance. And where the author thoroughly researched the subject with a creativity that seems to have disappeared. Writers such as Anthony were not afraid and did not succumb to the dictates of modern day feminists who cry foul if a writer choses to write about the reality of the times, whether it be (what is now termed as) bodice rippers, rape, violence, abuse, or blatant chauvinism, etc. There was a seriousness and depth to the writing that gave it an epic feel. Not like all this robotic fluff stuff, put out in recent years by the ever rushing (I have deadlines to meet) new pseudo-writers that are a dime a dozen.

Clandara has all the things that make a historical romance novel exceptional. It has the well-researched and realistic portrayal of family life and feuding of true highland clans. It has the court intricacies of suspense and betrayals that made up the politics of the time. And it has the classic battles scenes written with a realism that is breath-taking. The secondary characters and storylines are equally well developed. There is such intensity to Anthony's writing and yet she manages to write a believable romance into this epic story.

This is a must read book for anyone who loves a well-written highland romance packed with rich history and a sweeping and detailed love story.
