    1. I must love the Scottish highlands because I have many favorite books set there. Now all I need to do is travel there to see them myself. This is one I reread often.A much enjoyed, connected book with several of the characters is "Highland Masquerade."


    2. Some books, I like the whole of the book even if I can't quite identify why. If I break down the components of this book, there's a lot to DISlike. But I like the whole book all the same.Warning: If you don't like insta-love stories, this one will irritate you. The hero sees the heroine and falls madly in love with her. The story unfolds slowly. The dialogue is clunky at times. At one point, the heroine says, "You talk nonsense and I behave absurdly." (And I found myself agreeing with her on bot [...]


    3. I found this book half torn in a back shelf of my College library but I am glad I found it.The writing is beautiful and almost poetic in its description.The best thing about the book is that the protagonist is easily likeable and innocent.I hope to pick up more books by the author.


    4. Though this is "A Bantam Gothic Novel" it doesn't qualify as a gothic at all. The back blurb is cheating again; there's no "secret horror", no "half-crazed major tortured by love and despair", no "Scottish moors, shrouded in mist, pregnant with danger and menace". Umm, forgive me, there was mist! And our hero even turned up in that mist, so the title is no lie. Yay! Originally the book was published (in 1963) under the title "Visibility Nil" and I can see why they changed that.The book started o [...]


    5. Her first book, this is a romantic story of a recent military widow who rather than returning home to England and a fawning mother who thinks she knows best, accepts a spot in the Scottish highlands.Naturally she falls in love with a engineer up to work on the dam, who doesn't see her until a romantic interlude on top of a mist-shrouded mountain. There's the usual colorful local characters, a man who doesn't recognize no for an answer, and a flight home--where our heroine learns who she really i [...]


    6. This is one of those "like it, don't like it, like it, what are they thinking?" type of books. It reminds me of an old Cary Grant movie where they fall into each others arms and he says something`something "my darling". Oh, swoon! I thought it was a pretty good book though.


    7. I read this while I was home sick from work yesterday, and it was just the right thing. There was a bit of a mystery, the romance was light (and not the only thing going on), and the description of Scotland was appealing.


    8. Read this book many years ago. Still think of often. Read again to see if it was actually as good as I remembered. It was a fun read.


    9. I think this is very good gothic suspense. There are parts which are very creepy and suspenseful but then also moments down to earth reality. I found it a good mixture.
