I liked this story a lot. It seemed very realistic to me. It was fascinating to see a fiction story about Sir Walter Scott. Walter was a real person not just a fictional character. It was interesting to learn more about Sir Walter. This was the story of Walter’s one true love. I did enjoy a lot. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
