Starts Well, but Becomes Far-Fetched
This historical novel focuses on Flora McDonald, the young Scottish woman known for helping Bonnie Prince Charlie escape to the rugged Isle of Skye months after his defeat at Culloden, the prince disguised as a seamstress. Much of the story is familiar, but Gold has spun a brief romance between Flora and Charlie during the escape--one that resulted in a son whose true identity was hidden. At least until Flora decides to use his paternity to halt the rising American Revolution. The story is far-fetched (her grandson even meets Napoleon . . . ) and a bit too romancey for my taste. But I'll give him some points for creating a lively character in Flora and for his depictions of the rugged Scottish countryside.
