Two women living 300 years apart are bound by mysterious circumstances. 21st century Hanna uncovers evidence linking her to 17th century Anna. Both women experience adventure, romance, and tragedy as the reader witnesses them becoming more and more connected. “Fans of historical novels and romance will find Caledonia exquisitely compelling” (Midwest Book Reviews)

Anna can’t imagine marrying the old man her brother has cruelly chosen. Escape would be a challenge for any fifteen-year-old but was particularly difficult for a Jewess in 17th century Scotland.

Three centuries later, Hanna Duncan inherited an ancient key with a peculiar etching. Once deciphered, it led her to Edinburgh and ancient artifacts that revealed Anna’s role in the creation of Scotland’s colony.

Caledonia promised to be the trading hub of the New World, but illness and starvation hampered its success. Most of the colonists would be buried at sea or in the outpost’s muddy cemetery. In less than a year, the colony was abandoned.

Caledonia is a tale of two women separated by time but bound by mysterious circumstances. 21st century Hanna uncovered breadcrumbs left by her 17th century ancestor leading to their connection.
