The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle by Kirsty Wark.

I would award this book 2 stars. It was disappointing for I admire Kirsty Wark and expected greater things from her. The novel explores the lives of 2 women. Elizabeth  bequeaths her house on Arran to someone who once admired her house and wanted to buy it. (How believable is that?) Alternating chapters detail the events of Elizabeth's life and that of Martha, the daughter of the woman who inherits. Elizabeth's life is interesting up to a point and then I just lost interest. Maratha's life reads like Mills and Boon. Arran is well depicted.
