Book Description

A Thistle in the Mist by Megan Denby

The Indie Book of the Day for 10th of April, 2013!

Genre: History, Drama

Meara isn’t thinking about death, that morning, when she kisses her mother good-bye, but hours later she is, as her fingers slide into the back of Mother’s shattered skull. Empty eyes – the empty eyes of her mother – stare right through her and Meara thinks her world has ended. She has no idea.

Ebullient and feisty, eighteen-year-old Meara MacDonald lives an idyllic life with her family, on the mist-enfolded Isle of Skye, dreaming of the day when she will wed her heart, the gallant Duncan MacLeod. But fate has other plans and when Aunt Deirdre and Uncle Sloan seep into their midst, Meara’s family is taken, one-by-one, for reasons she discovers are both personal and nefarious. 

Mother is found dead, Da disappears, Duncan is taken by the Napoleonic Wars, Meara’s younger sister, Hannah – with child by Uncle Sloan – takes her own life and while Meara sleeps, her newborn son is snatched from her arms. 

Unable to reign in her spirit or her tongue, Meara finds herself catapulted from Scotland to a household steeped in mystery in Nova Scotia where, guided by her strength of will, she will fight her way back to the remains of her family; her heart and soul.

Read Sample

Megan Denby is an award-winning novelist who grew up on a farm with two older sisters and a younger brother. Once she discovered the world of books, she was lost, often reading to the wee hours of the morning.

Megan has been writing for over thirty years. Her debut novel, “A Thistle in the Mist” was described by one agent as having a “hypnotic, fairy-tale-like quality” and was inspired by the turbulent life of her feisty, Scottish great-grandmother.

A former ball player, Megan, is an avid dragonboater and draws inspiration from the tranquility of her secluded cottage in Northern Ontario. She enjoys watching hockey but is a lousy player.

A Canadian girl, she lives in the enchanting, lakeside community of Port Perry, Ontario with her wife and passel of children and pets and is working on the disturbing sequel, “Lost to the Mist”.
