Description

Re-issued in its original full length, this acclaimed and bestselling romantic historical novel by award-winning author Ciji Ware tells the true story of passionate and flamboyant Jane Maxwell, the 4th Duchess of Gordon (1749-1812). In love since childhood with Thomas Fraser, when she hears that he's been killed in America, she marries the Duke of Gordon with disastrous results. But Fraser, very much alive, returns to England to claim her love. 

In addition to telling a heart-wrenching love story, Island of the Swans also paints a fascinating portrait of a powerful and controversial woman and the tumultuous era in which she lived. Patroness of poet Robert Burns, advisor to King George, painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds, Jane Maxwell was a towering figure in her own time and is an unforgettable heroine.

Epic Escapism

Island of the Swans is a very engaging, Gone with the Wind-esque, sweeping epic. While obvious literary license was employed, there are many historical accuracies surrounding the heroine, Duchess Jane Maxwell Gordon, and her contemporaries. The story is cleverly woven and provides great escapism for lovers of historical fiction.
