THE SIXTH AND FINAL BOOK IN THE CAPTIVATING SERIES WHICH FOLLOWS THE LIVES OF BETH AND ALEX MACGREGOR, THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
Alex, now believing Beth to be alive, leaves Scotland and heads south to keep the promise he made to her at Culloden, determined to be reunited with his wife regardless of the danger to himself.
Meanwhile the Duke of Newcastle has realised that he cannot kill Beth, either publicly or privately, without attracting the enmity of powerful people, including the heir to the throne. He hits upon a way of being rid of her forever; transportation to Antigua as an indentured servant for life. By this deed he hopes that the terrible conditions on the sugar plantations will achieve the much-desired death of the woman who has defied him for so long.
Things do not go according to plan and soon Beth finds her life going in a direction neither she nor Newcastle could have foreseen, which leads her to make a decision that could have a terrible impact on Alex as he attempts to discover her whereabouts.
JOIN THE REBELLION AS BETH AND ALEX FIGHT TO SURVIVE AND BE REUNITED IN…
THE JACOBITE CHRONICLES
I loved this book. I realize this might seem like a weird statement considering the fact that I gave it four stars, but I really did love this book. Tides of Fortune is book 6 in The Jacobite Chronicles and is the final in the series. I discovered the series last November and read them in time to read this book the week that it was released.
Historical fiction has been my favorite genre for a long time. This series wove the lives of fictional characters into real events in a way that at times I had to remind myself that it was fictional. I really liked that at the end of each book Julia Brannan (author) would tell you what events were real and how they really happened.
This final book did a wonderful job of keeping you guessing until the very end. I would definitely recommend that people read this book, but you must read it as part of the series because it would not be as good if you don’t.
