This is a wonderfully evocative novel, exploring the life of Bonnie Prince Charlie, one of history's most colourful characters...Charles Edward Stewart, better known as 'Bonnie Prince Charlie', is famous for his doomed attack on England and his subsequent flight from Scotland disguised as an Irish serving maid, aided by Flora Macdonald, a poor shepherdess who took pity on his plight. This episode made him a legend in his homeland, but what happened next? Now, years later, the Prince is living in comfort in London, cut-off from reality, and Flora is married with four children, but is struggling to survive. In this fictionalized account, Elisabeth McNeill reveals the man behind the myth and wonderfully recreates life in the eighteenth century, as she completes their story.
