The Secret of Ardnish Summary

The Secret of Ardnish: A Novel by Angus MacDonald

A small inheritance and a letter from his grandfather mark the beginnings of a journey that leads Peter Angus Gillies from his mundane job in Canada to Ardnish, the land of his forebears, on the rugged and remote west coast of Scotland.

As Peter Angus explores the long-abandoned places where his ancestors eked out a living and listens to stories about them, he learns of treasure lost centuries before from a ship transporting French gold to help the Jacobite cause. Completely bewitched by the spell of Ardnish and the ghosts of its past, he sets out to find the hidden gold. With the help of a local girl, Sarah, he embarks on a search that will test him emotionally and physically as he learns independence and resilience - and experiences a love like he has never known before.
