A boy with dreams of adventure...a girl with a traumatic past...and a prince determined to take a throne...
Ailean MacLachlainn, the son of a poor crofter in Scotland's highlands, wants a life of adventure. He often daydreams of being a respected warrior of his clan. And he battles rival Latharn Cambeul in the game of camanachd...and wins. But Ailean meets a girl, and a shy smile and a glance from Mùirne's blue eyes turns his head. He wins her love, and his rivalry with Latharn is no longer a game with a camanachd stick; now they fight with swords.
Ailean gets his wish to become a warrior when Bonnie Prince Charlie comes to raise a Highland army in the attempt to retake his father's throne. Ailean's clan chief involves his clan in the uprising and sets Ailean on a course toward a destiny he could never have forseen.
What happens when a man's dreams turn to dust? And when a man loses everything, does he have what it takes to go on?
High on a Mountain is the stirring tale of one man's remarkable journey through life. A story of adventure and love...of faith, loss, and redemption.
