9780141026794: White Rose Rebel

Anne Farquharson is a Highland girl - tempestuous, bold, determined to be her own woman. Yet the clan Farquharson is threatened. The Highlands suffer at the domineering hand of English King George, while there are rumours that Bonnie Prince Charlie, exiled to France, is raising an army in a bid for the throne.

When Anne marries a clan chief and creates a shaky alliance, she is doing more than taking his bed. Soon she is drawn into the heart of a brutal and bloody conflict, and as the Jacobite rebellion escalates, she and her husband find themselves on opposite sides of the battlefield.

White Rose Rebel is inspired by the true story of a Highland heroine who risked everything for her country and its rightful king.

'A tragic slice of history converted into popular, impassioned fiction' -- Kirkus Reviews

'An empowering and rip-roaring yarn' -- Scotland on Sunday

'An excellent fictional account ... the creation of Anne Farquharson is a triumph' -- Scottish Review of Books

'This richly textured historical romance from Scottish poet and short story writer Paisley reimagines the story of Colonel Anne Farquharson, a real-life leader in the Jacobite uprising of 1745' -- Publishers Weekly

`Pacy, racy... a claymore-swinging, heather-igniting, historical adventure' -- Sunday Times
