Based on the life of our own Flora MacDonald, this historical novel sweeps the heroine from her home in Skye to the Carolinas of Revolutionary America. The young girl who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie evade his pursuers is now a mature woman who takes the bold decision to seek a new life across the ocean. Carefully researched and beautifully written this is a tale as romantic and stirring as that of her early life - the hardships and dangers of the voyage, the privations and political intrigue of their new home and of a Scotswoman's courage and determination as she fights for the rights of her family. It is also the story of the emerging American nation.
