Publisher's Summary

A historical novel based on a true story of the Jacobite rebellion, from "a writer who has a special feeling for the dramatic" (Chicago Tribune).

This fiercely beautiful novel tells the true story of Charles Radcliffe, a Catholic nobleman who joined the short-lived Jacobite rebellion of 1715, and of Jenny, his daughter by a secret marriage. Set in the Northumbrian wilds, teeming London, and colonial Virginia - where Jenny eventually settled on the estate of the famous William Byrd of Westover - Jenny's story reveals one young woman's loyalty, passion, and courage as she struggles in a life divided between the Old World and the New.

Not her best

Lots of seemingly well researched, yet tedious detail about a small slice of the Jacobite risings.
