HIGH ON A MOUNTAIN (A MacLachlainn Saga) by Tommie Lyn
As a boy, Ailean MacLachlainn dreamed of living an adventurous life and longed to be a celebrated warrior of his clan. Until a shy smile and a glance from Mùirne's blue eyes turned his head and escalated his rivalry with Latharn into enmity and open conflict.

When Ailean became a man, his boyhood dreams faded. Until Bonnie Prince Charlie came to reclaim his father's throne. The Jacobite loyalties of Ailean's clan chief involved the MacLachlainns in the uprising and set Ailean on a course toward a destiny of which he could never have dreamed.

What happens when a man's dreams turn to dust? And when a man loses everything, does he have what it takes to go on?

High on a Mountain is the stirring tale of one man's remarkable journey through life; a story of adventure and love...of faith, loss and redemption.

Add a hitman, Hurricane Ivan, and conscientious Deputy Clay Cameron from Santa Rosa County to the mix, and the tension tightens like a corkscrew.

But Handy was found dead and a suicide note on his typewriter said he stole from the Navy to pay for his dream home. Folks regarded him as a traitor, and thought his wife Rachel was his accomplice.

What's it like growing up under a cloud of suspicion? Will Handy's daughter Fallon be an outcast forever?
