Spotlight on Europe

Today is Hearts in the Highlands by Ruth Axtell Morren. It's part of the Love Inspired Historical line and hit the shelves yesterday.

From Amazon:
Maddie Norton had long since resigned herself to her spinster's lot. Her life was devoted to her simple yet enduring faith, to good works and to the elderly lady whose companion she was. She believed herself content. But that was before her mistress's handsome nephew returned to London, after many years spent abroad as an archaeologist.The shadows in Reid Gallagher's memory-haunted eyes touched Maddie's heart. When he asked her to travel with his family, to help with his work, she could scarcely refuse. And as she came to know this man better, amid the breathtaking beauty of the Scottish Highlands, she began to wonder if two solitary souls might yet find new life—and love—as one.

My family roots on my mom's side of the family are very Scottish. Doesn't get much more Scottish than Stewart! Unless your name is MacGregor or Bruce. The world's most popular plaid is my family tartan and I wear it with pride.

The hero, Reid, is an archaeologist who's just returned to Great Britain from Egypt. That's another subject that I enjoy reading about it and talk about perfect timing! The next Indiana Jones movie opens next month. Hopefully I will have a copy of this book in my hands before the day is over. As I'm typing this my mom is about to go to Wal-Mart. :D

Once I've read the book, watch for an interview with Ruth.
