A wonderfully captivating historical romance from the author of the bestselling classic Katherine. 'To read Seton is to enter into another time with such conviction that it seems as real as the present' (Philippa Gregory)

Set during the Jacobite Risings of 1715 and 1745, this is the story of Charles Radcliffe, a brave and devoted follower of the exiled Stuart royal family, and of Jenny, his beloved daughter from a secret marriage. As Charles strives to regain the English throne for his deposed king, Jenny struggles to leave the conflicts of the Old World behind in her search for freedom and happiness in the American colonies.

From rural Northumbria to the bustle of 18th century London and colonial Virginia, Seton brings history to life to create a fiercely beautiful novel of loyalty, passion, courage and tragedy.

ANYA SETON (1904 -1990) was the author of 10 bestselling historical novels: Dragonwyk, My Theodosia, The Turquoise, The Hearth & Eagle, Foxfire, Katherine, Avalon, The Winthrop Woman, Devil Water and Green Darkness

Miss Seton's enthusiasm for both character and period is infectious * Daily Telegraph *
Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale * Women's Journal *
