This story is fascinated because it’s makes by intrigue, witchcraft, a temporal travel and a incredible love triangle. It’s a mix between Downtown Abbey and Games Of Thrones. The heroin is stunning. She gave way in a very male society and knows make essential in Scotland thanks her medical knowledges. She is very courageous and feminist, she defend woman. The costumes and decors was very realistic and beautiful. I like this serie because she mix the history, the fiction and love. The idea of travels into the time it’s a great idea. I advise this series for those who likes the Scottish history and the loving plot.
