In the end, the truth is even more complicated than Mackenzie had ever imagined.
 My Review
Five stars

Received from Historical Fiction Virtual tour for an honest review.
I really enjoyed "Mackenzie's Cross" by Sarah Barthel.  I'm a sucker for the knights in shining armor but when a heroine is also a strong character it makes it that much better.  The writing was easy and flowed.  It was a story that captured my attention from the very beginning.  I love stories where there is a great mixture of history, romance, adventure and mystery.  I enjoyed this story and the characters.  You can't go wrong reading this great adventure!
