From the cover: “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.”
