The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley (2010, Sourcebooks, Inc).
This is a lovely historical (and modern) romance full of poetic prose and evocative imagery. It alternates between the story of a seventeenth century Scottish woman caught up in the Jacobite rebellion (in which they tried unsuccessfully to bring back the King of Scotland from exile in France) and a modern Canadian woman writing a novel (on location) about her ancestors. (Turns out there was never a Jacob at all, it was King James they wanted to bring back). If you like historical romance, I guarantee you will love this one. I can’t say too much or I’ll spoil the plot for you.
