"Trust me, Davina. Trust me."
Who can I call to make a movie about Highlanders?!! I LOVED THE MACGREGORS. It was honestly a treat to get the brooding Robert MacGregor as the obstinate and loyal hero, who made me swoon a little, even with the medium steam, PLUS his brothers and cousins, especially Colin MacGregor and Connor Grant, whose charm oosed from the words.
In this tale, I got the mystical description of the Isle of Skye and the castle of Camlochlin. I got the brutal fights between highlanders and treacherous traitors of the crown. I got a sweet heroine, Davina, who went to mush over her highland protector and believed in his love so confidently. I got the intrigue of the Callum MacGregor, Rob's father and the famous clan laird. The wonder of his love for his wife, Kate, his sons and his clan, was such that he wouldn't budge from for even the highest royal in England. I got the doting Maggie, the MacGregor aunt who is an added balm as well as a shadowed lady.
It was all so entertaining, with the imitated burr of the audio's narrator and the "doonas," "willnas" and "bairns".
I found no fault with the way the story was told or with the simple, common plot of a king's secret daughter. All' tis well!
