Highland Sanctuary by Jennifer Hudson Taylor

A Sanctuary of Secrets...

Gavin MacKenzie, a chieftain heir who is hired to restore the ancient Castle of Braigh, discovers a hidden village of outcasts who have created their own private sanctuary from the world. Among them is Serena Boyd, a mysterious and comely lass, who captures Gavin’s heart in spite of harboring a deadly past that could destroy her future. 

The villagers happen to be keeping an intriguing secret as well. When a fierce enemy launches an attack against them, greed leads to bitter betrayal. As Gavin prepares a defense, the villagers unite in a bold act of faith, showing how God’s love is more powerful than any human force on earth.


Highland Sanctuary is book two in the series. I loved book one, Highland Blessings. This one is with the brother of the lady in book one. I loved this one just as much. Jennifer is able to make the characters come alive and the setting seem as if you are right there with them. 

In Highland Blessings you meet Gavin. He is actually one of my favorite side characters in that book. I am so glad he got his own story. He is a strong and compassionate person. Serena is a sweet and caring young woman who is intelligent and loving. Her friends are loyal to her and she earns the love and respect of two powerful men. But who will win her heart?

The Village of Outcasts was one of my favorite parts. I loved meeting all of the people who lived there and watching how they cared for each other like a family. It is the age old lesson of treating others as creations of God and not looking down on them because they are different. 

This is a great book for any age. Another great Christmas gift for those who love to read historical romance. Take a journey to 1477 Scotland and see how Gavin and Serena meet and fall in love.
