MacDonald spins a tale "shadowed by God" as he traces the stormy love between a Scottish fisherman and a beautiful high-spirited girl. An excerpt from Malcolm reads "This lowland village has come upon strange times . . . for a young woman has died in sorrow -- and the mad hunchback laird, Stephen Stewart, scurries across the heath, crying out to the skies to tell him where he came from. And now Malcolm's father warns against the woman Malcolm already knows to have strange and disturbing ways -- and to have hurled curses at him!" The Marqui's Secret is the sequel.
