About Tommie Lyn

Tommie Lyn grew up in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia immersed in firelight whispers. She listened spellbound as older generations spun chilling tales of local events, including stories of the supernatural. And sometimes, they even used the word "murder."

She carries on the tradition of her kinfolk, the storytelling magic guaranteed to rob hours of sleep and make the night come alive. Only the brave dare step into her world to listen. And sometimes, the voices still whisper...

I was very impressed with this book as well as the next "In the Valley". Very well written. Alot of history I new nothing about. I can't wait to see what happens next. This is a must read if you are interested in Scotchland and what happened to her people durning hard times of war.

Tommie Lyn obviously did a lot of research before writing this outstanding novel about life in Scotland during the 1700's. Thanks to the vivid word pictures, I can imagine the beauty of the land and the simple existence of the common man. It's hard to read about the painful events that destroyed the lives of so many innocent people, especially when you know that the story is based on actual history. I had so much compassion for the main character, as he suffered hardships that should never befall anyone. He is a fine example of a man who has every excuse to give in and give up, but somehow, with divine assistance, will survive instead, and eventually triumph against all odds. The writing is beautiful, beginning with the very first sentence, and the story will stay with me forever. Just be sure to have a box of tissues on hand when you read this book.

I thought this was a wonderful story, well written and deeply touching. Thank you Tommie Lyn for a wonderful look at life and the history of the people who immigrated to America along different paths, mingling with the American natives who lived here. I look forward to the sequel very much.

Tommie Lyn knows her Highlanders, and it's obvious from the first sentence. Her characters are fully realized and believable, her ear for dialogue is outstanding. First class.
