A Jacobite Novel
Back cover text:
On the Feast Day of Bride,
The Daughter of Ivor,
Shall come from her mound,
In the rocks amongst the heather.
I will not touch Ivor’s daughter,
Nor shall she harm me.
Two extraordinary women come back to full-bodied life. Flora McIvor has been rescued from the pages of Sir Walter Scott, who sent her to a nunnery. Her close friend, the real life Clementina Walkinshaw, was the love of Bonnie Prince Charlie, and mother of his only child. Both are caught up in a tangle of espionage and treachery following the defeat of the 1745 Jacobite Rising in Scotland.
