High on a Mountain by Tommie Lyn

My sister's novel in e-book format is available FREE for a limited time -- for Kindle at, for other e-book formats at Smashwords.

This is the first title in The MacLachlainn Saga. Titles two and three (Deep In the Valley and Across the Wide River) also available. The fourth and final volume, On Red Clay Hills, is in progress...


A boy with dreams of adventure...a girl with a traumatic past...and a prince determined to take a throne...
Ailean MacLachlainn, the son of a poor crofter in Scotland's highlands, wants a life of adventure. He often daydreams of being a respected warrior of his clan. And he battles rival Latharn Cambeul in the game of camanachd...and wins. But Ailean meets a girl, and a shy smile and a glance from Mùirne's blue eyes turns his head. He wins her love, and his rivalry with Latharn is no longer a game with a camanachd stick. Now they fight with swords.

Ailean gets his wish to become a warrior when Bonnie Prince Charlie comes to raise a Highland army in the attempt to retake his father's throne. Ailean's clan chief involves his clan in the uprising, and sets Ailean on a course toward a destiny he could never have foreseen.

What happens when a man's dreams turn to dust? And when a man loses everything, does he have what it takes to go on?

HIGH ON A MOUNTAIN is the stirring tale of one man's remarkable journey through life. A story of adventure and love...of faith, loss, and redemption.


Dedicated to our Scottish ancestors,
who suffered so much, yet
endured it all without complaint
and without succumbing to self-pity.
