If you are a fan of imagination gripping historical fiction you will love Come Winter by Clare Guiterrez. The book follows the life of Lady Caterina Tabor. When she leaves her English parents who are living in Italy bound for the court of the Queen she is kidnapped. Her journey begins when she is being held in the Scottish highlands castle against her will. She struggles to decide if she should stay or flee and what each option means for her future. Ultimately her decision changes the course of her life and her station.
Come Winter was fantastic! While this is historical fiction it is not set in such specific circumstances that the fiction leaves you feeling betrayed by history. The descriptions of all of Caty's different locations are fascinating and really leave the reader intrigued. I highly recommend this book. I don't know that it would be great summer reading by a pool or beach, but it would be great reading by a fire come fall or winter.
Honestly, it won't matter when you read it, you will be so wrapped up in the story.
