That Autumn in Edinburgh by Ciji Ware

That Autumn in Edinburgh

Dateline: 250 years later…

Can memories of a tragic, eighteenth century love triangle be passed down through a descendant’s DNA?

A compelling, almost mystical attraction draws American designer Fiona Fraser into the force field of visiting Scotsman, Alexander Maxwell, through an eerie happenstance one steamy summer’s day in New York City.

When Fiona’s mercurial boss dispatches her to Edinburgh to create a Scottish Home Furnishings Collection, the chemistry deepens as she and Alex discover their ancestral bonds to the star-crossed lovers Thomas Fraser—the “Lost Lieutenant”—and Jane Maxwell, the flamboyant 4th Duchess of Gordon who died in 1812.

From the cobbled streets of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile to the tartan and cashmere mills of the Scottish border country, the modern lovers grapple with the imminent threat of financial ruin to their respective firms, along with ancient wounds echoing down through time—and a heartbreaking mystery, hidden for more than two centuries, that will dictate their own destinies…

Includes a Readers Group Discussion Guide


“A deep, complex novel exploring love, betrayal, healing, and renewal in the human heart.” —Affaire de Coeur

“…[A] story so fascinating that it should come with a warning—do not start unless you want to be up all night!”—Romantic Times

I should first say that I was looking forward to this 'standalon
I should first say that I was looking forward to this 'standalone sequel' more than any of the others in the Four Seasons Quartet.  After finishing 'Island of the Swans', I immediately contacted the author via Goodreads and sent her a big WHAT HAPPENS??.  Well, That Autumn in Edinburgh is the answer and the answer does not disappoint. With a great present day story that I found just as interesting as the past the characters were trying to dig up, That 'Autumn in Edinburgh' weaves a tale that is not for someone looking for a 'fluffy' read.  Like all of Ms. Ware's books, Autumn takes a little commitment.  There are numerous characters, past and present to keep track of, not to mention all of the Scottish and English details.  But that is what makes all of her books so worth a read.  There are is much depth to her characters, but never too much.  Her ability to juggle a complex plot (because anytime you're dealing with two different times, the plot is automatically complex), a sea of characters and a lush, unfamiliar landscape easily puts her in my top 5 favorite authors. Some of my favorites points about That Autumn in Edinburgh (may contain mini-spoilers): 1) A man who is faithful to his wife, even though his marriage is falling apart.  That never seems to happen. 2) Showing how your family can REALLY screw you up. 3) Ms. Ware's descriptions of Scotland and the Scottish businesses.  Again, in depth but never too much that I felt like I was lost in the description. 4) Two believable main characters with real problems. 5)  A beautiful connection between the main characters and the characters from Island of the Swans.   Finally, I do not believe that you need to read Island of the Swans first.  In fact, Swans may be an easier read if you read That Autumn in Edinburgh first.  Either way, both are worth a read...maybe several reads.

Awesome!
I couldn't stop reading! It so reminded me of my own visit to Scotland. Wonderful, descriptive writing with a tear-wrenching, joyful ending.
