Book Review: Who Lives By The Sword


“Then give me a thousand years, her heart cried, and then I can forget him.”


Faith Mcdowlyn has lived in the same house all her life. With her mothers passing when she was a child, Faith is left to help her father run the family Inn. When her brother Duncan shows up suddenly at her house, Faith learns that she is to go with him to live under the Laird Niall Dubhain far up in the Highlands at his estate to work.

Once I started this book, I could not put it down. Author Amy Lemco has a beautiful style of writing that wraps you into the setting of the story like a cozy blanket on a rainy day. Each side character is filled with a great backstory and personality, and fits perfectly into the framework of the book. Faith is strong, kind and pure woman, a splendid match to the cool and detached Niall. There is no sudden meet-cute to them, the reader is able to watch and enjoy as the two slowly learn about the other, and watch the relationship blossom. I found myself laughing, jumping for joy, and aching for these characters along the way.

Set against the Scottish landscape in the year 1800, Who Lives by the Sword is a tale of adventure, forgiveness, family, and romance.

I was given a copy of this book by its author in exchange for my honest review.
