This story began my love affair with the McDonnell's. Here’s the blurb!

In 1842, Lord Gordon claims his new estate in Northern Scotland and plans to replace farmers and fishermen with sheep. 

Mac McDonnell, suspicious of Lord Gordon from the beginning, leads protests – despite the impact his actions will have on his sister and three brothers. When evictions begin, a second protest at Westness turns violent. What will Mac risk to protect his family, his sweetheart, and his livelihood?

Set in the Orkney Islands during the time of the Clearances, Standing Stones won an award from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association for historical fiction and was called “a very promising work, with appeal to a broad audience, peppered with a variety of characters the reader can identify with sympathetically or instantly distrust.”


“Well-developed characters and well-researched background & history made this an excellent book that I found hard to put down. I felt as if I was a friend of the McDonnell family, living on the island and sharing their love and hardships.”

Update on other writing: Working on final revisions for The Seventh Tapestry, a contemporary romantic-suspense set in Scotland with plans to publish before year-end. Here's the blurb: 

Newly hired museum curator Sandra Robertson is pulled into danger when she finds clues to an undiscovered 16th Century tapestry in Scotland and attempts to rescue it from the black market with help from Neil McDonnell, Edinburgh’s Art Crimes Unit.

May the end of summer bring you a sense of celebration as those leaves turn from green to brown and families gather.  Beth


  1. What a lovely gift! Thank you, Beth. I really hope to have more time later this year to read this first book of your series.

    1. Thank you, Liesbet. Looking forward to catching up on your travels as well. May you find a safe haven in the fall.

  2. Hi,
    First congratulations on Book One of Standing Stone. I went on Amazon to find it but here in Germany it was only offered free if you signed up for Kindle Select Reading Program which I didn't want to do. So, I purchased your book with the price that was offered. Now I have all the more reason to read it.
    Take care and all the best.

    1. So sorry, Pat, that Amazon didn't offer the free Kindle version in Germany, but thank YOU for jumping right in. I hope you enjoy this historical fiction . . . it's only the beginning, right?
