I wanted to write a story that incorporated two subjects that are of great interest to me - history and the idea of reincarnation.
The ending of Rachel's story came to me first and all that was left to do was reach it.
On one of my visits home to Scotland, I visited the island of Inchmahome on the Lake of Menteith. It was a warm summer's day and the only sounds were the lapping of water against the shore and the birds singing in the trees. As I explored the ruins of the 13th century priory, I thought how magical this place was. I have always loved Scotland’s ancient and interesting history and I decided to find out more about Inchmahome’s part in that history and weave a story around it.
A story of Druids, Knights Templars and an enduring love that spans centuries.
