Reader's Reviews

“Read this book if you love being whisked into the past, if you like a bit of romance and want a character you can really cheer for! The story follows a young woman in the 1800’s who is a descendent of the early Scottish settlers. Her dominating mother marries her off to a man she has never met, and she faces many challenges in her new relationship and in making a home. I loved the story. It was fun to read and obviously well researched. A wonderful bit of escapism and very well written. I’m going to look for other books by the author.”

“The husband's family is from PEI, and he's descended (as are so many others) from Murdoch "Tailor" MacLeod. This is a valuable resource, pulling together lots of fact (and some family legends I'd never heard!) in an easily-consultable manner. If you're researching your Scots ancestry and your people came thru the Island, you need this book.”

“Make yourself a pot of tea, settle into your favourite cozy chair and lose yourself once again in one of Westlie’s delightful mysteries. Westlie is lovely to read, unlike so many shoot ‘em up, murder mysteries. The Prince Edward Island setting is soothing and relaxing. The characters are believable, with a bit of sass to them that really brings them to life. If you're looking for a  book to bring on vacation, Ghost Baby is a wonderful choice.”
