A forsaken birthright, forbidden romance, and a suspenseful quest into the hidden realm of Celtic ancient lore

Full of mystery and romance, Uist Skerrie: The Inheritance is a captivating debut novel by Ellen Cartwright. Set on an island in the Chesapeake Bay, Uist Skerrie manages to be simultaneously historical and modern.

Bralley Glenn, freshly minted MD, finds herself swept up into personal and professional turmoil when she must give up her carefully planned future in order to repay a debt of service. Bralley struggles against the confines of a forgotten childhood, the remote island and its mysterious inhabitants. Two intriguing men vie for her attention; each with his own powerful needs. Brilliant and handsome marine biologist, Beathan, who serves as her guide to the people of Uist Skerrie, helps Bralley bridge the gap between old and new. Bewitching visitor Ossian captivates her senses and makes her feel like no other man has. Skillfully woven narrative, wonderful characters, evocative scenery and thrilling passion propel the reader headlong into Bralley's world. As turbulent as the sea and as beautiful as her inhabitants, Uist Skerrie is a spellbinding read.
