Title: To Weave A Highland Tapestry

Author: Mary Morgan

Genre: Time-Travel Medieval Paranormal Romance

Book Blurb:

Patrick MacFhearguis, hardened by battles won and lost, desires what he can never have—peace within his heart and soul. Yet, the ever-meddling Fae weave a new journey for him to conquer—a task this highlander is determined to resist.

When skilled weaver, Gwen Hywel, is commissioned to create a tapestry for the MacFhearguis clan, she embraces the assignment. While seeking out ideas, she finds herself clutching the one thread that can alter the tapestry of her life and heart.

A man conflicted by past deeds. A woman with no family of her own. Is it possible for love to unravel an ancient past, in order to claim two badly scarred hearts? Or will the light of hope be doused forever?

My Review:

Gwen Hywel is a talented weaver and when she is hired by the MacFhearguis clan to create a tapestry, she’s thrilled. While on a ride around the property, she discovers more about a family curse and with a tug on a thread, everything turns black. She awakens in the past and must find her way back, somehow. But when she meets Patrick MacFhearguis, her heart is conflicted. Even though she yearns for her previous life, her heart craves to be close to him. Will she choose love and break the curse or will she turn her back on destiny?

To Weave a Highland Tapestry is a beautiful holiday romance set in 13th century Scotland. The Fae are hard at work bringing together scarred souls, no matter which century they reside in. Gwen and Patrick are lonely yet will never admit it. When they first meet, they spar verbally but like most people, they are scared to fall in love. Past hurts rear their ugly heads and the couple must communicate better to overcome the obstacles. The romance is slow-burning but so worth it. I loved watching them dance together and apart towards their happy ending.

The best thing about To Weave a Highland Tapestry, though, is the Dragon Knights and their families. I loved catching up with Adam and Meggie with their children in modern-day and all the Dragon Knights and their families in the 13th century. It was like a family reunion and I became part of the clans, at least for a little while.

I also loved the medieval Mid-Winter traditions and customs Mary Morgan weaved throughout the story. It transported me back in time and I imagined pulling my husband into an alcove for a kiss.

If you love time-travel romance with independent heroines and virile heroes, you’ll love this book. Fans of Outlander will love this one.

Favorite Character/Quote: Gwen. From the moment she appears her honest reactions to everything she goes through rings true. Her time-travel adventure is impossible yet she’s experiencing it. Her lightness contrasts Patrick’s darkness and together they bring out the best in each other. One of my favorite Mary Morgan heroines.
