Book Review: Under a Storm-Swept Sky by Beth Anne Miller

What’s the story?

An eighty-mile trek across the rugged, stunning beauty of Scotland’s Isle of Skye isn’t something I imagined myself doing. Ever. This isn’t a trail for beginners. And I’m not a hiker.

But I have to finish it, even if it kills me. I have no choice.

With the ever-changing weather and relentless terrain, I’m in over my head.

Rory Sutherland, my guide on this adventure, is not happy. We clash with every mile, but we recognize a shared pain. Not only is the journey a struggle, but the tension between us is taut with unsaid words. And hope.

He’s broken. I’m damaged. Together, we’re about to make the perfect storm.

Favorite Words: “And happily so. But that doesn’t mean I can’t admire a fine-looking young man. And between him and Tommy, we have plenty to look at if the scenery gets dull. Though it doesn’t seem likely that will happen. Look at that!”


I will start this review by saying that this book is based in the Isle of Skye, off the northwest coast of Scotland. I have been to Skye and this book makes me want to go back immediately. The scenery that was described by this book is exactly how grand it was to be there.

Amelia and Rory were two people that both struggled with tragic events. It brought them together in a way that was unique. I admit that there were times that I did tear up because the author did a phenomenal job depicting deep emotions throughout the book.

There were sexy scenes in this book but they weren’t quick and dirty. They were visual in the sense of the place they occurred. They were a lovely way to show love making and the connection that Amelia and Rory had together.

I thought that this book was truly well done. I adored it. Read it if you want to travel to a part of Scotland you don’t see often, but is truly beautiful. Also read it if you want to fall in love with two special characters, Amelia and Rory.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
