"21st century meets 14th century - where will love take them?"

Against his better judgment, Conor McCloud makes a promise to a dying friend: seek out the healer Magdah and find the Peacekeeper... the woman said who could heal the land... a woman from another time and place.

Eilan Dougan is on leave while she copes with diagnosis of a brain tumor. She is using the time to help sell her parents' antique shop. Her ability to sense others' feelings has set her apart, so she is comfortable with the unusual -- but a 14th century Highlander suddenly appearing in the store is quite a shock. Although she tries to convince him to stay with her in the 21st century, she agrees to return with him to Scotland. She has no idea how to fulfill his hopes of saving his castle but has come to trust Conor. Instead of Eilan saving Conor, Conor must rescue Eilan from charges by his enemy of witchcraft.

This time-travel has the fun of showing both the 21st century through the eyes of a 14th century man and the 14th century through the eyes of a 21st century woman. In a somewhat predictable but enjoyable story, Ms. Binder brings both adventure and love together in the Highlands.

SUMMARY

2002 PRISM AWARD Finalist:
1st place - TIME TRAVEL

Conor McCloud returns from the Crusades to discover his cousin has taken possession of Inverness, the McCloud castle. Fighting back to reclaim his family home, Conor makes a promise to a dying friend: seek out the woman whom a witch said could heal the land...a woman from another time and place.

Eilan Dougan has taken leave from her Colorado river rafting business to help sell her parents' Seattle antique shop. Her uncanny ability to sense others' thoughts has always set her apart-and when a dark Highlander appears and begs her help, she can't refuse. But fourteenth-century Scotland is no place for a woman with Eilan's powers. Now instead of Eilan saving Conor, Conor must rescue Eilan from charges of witchcraft-and decide whether love can withstand the ultimate test of time.
