“You will become a banshee,” said the Wise Woman. “Your people need your powers.”
Shona Campbell, the daughter of a Scottish chief, expected an arranged marriage with a distant cousin, a nice gentleman from the Highlands. No problem…until she is told she will marry a Lowlander with a need for her dowry and a taste for cruelty. She has two choices. She could become a banshee and be shunned by everyone in the glen. Or she could accept the help of a MacDonald, her clan’s traditional enemy… and be shunned by every Campbell in Argyll. And try to ignore the love stirring in her heart.
Alasdair MacDonald is a drover, taking cattle from Highlands to Lowlands. He wants to broker a truce with the Campbells. Tender feelings for the chief’s daughter will endanger the truce and the chance to do business ever again with the Campbells.
Can Shona defeat her ruthless suitor with the help of a MacDonald or must she learn the magic of the banshee to save her people from the danger in the Lowlands? Can she suppress her strong feelings for the handsome MacDonald?

“Beautifully written from the viewpoint of a vibrant young woman.” – Historical Novel Society on Red River Stallion
A teenage girl and her beautiful purebred horse; the coldest winter of the twentieth century; a brutal invading army; and refugees fleeing for their lives. Can love be the only thing that saves them?
A black Trakehner mare named Carina saved Eva’s life when she was young. Now Eva, daughter of a Prussian cavalry officer, needs to save her mare’s life—if she can. It’s 1945 and Eva, her family, and the horses join the refugees struggling across northern Europe, fleeing the advance of the Red Army. The horses walk carrying unborn foals, their shoes falling off, their legs injured, their bellies empty.
Eva doesn’t know what they will face on their epic trek. Can she keep her promise to Carina that one day she will run in green pastures, and her foals will be champions? This dream is practically all that helps Eva face the unbelievable hardship along hundreds of miles of icy roads. Through it all, she is determined not to be parted from her black mare.
Based on true events, this novel traces the history of Trakehner horses. Internationally famous in dressage and jumping, they walked out of Prussia during WWII in an incredible feat of endurance.
“Impressive research brings this era to life, characters ring true, and equestrian abilities, while impressive, are fully credible.” – Kirkus Reviews on The Horse Road
