Review by Glorybe1
I loved this book, as I love all Jack Whyte's books. It is about William Wallace the fabled hero of Scotland that the Braveheart film was based on. It is a purely fictional account of his rise and fall and is written with all the warmth and feeling that Jack Whytes weaves into all his books.Written in the first person by Wallace's supposed cousin Father James Wallace it tells the story of the 2 boys at age 8 or 9 being badly used by English soldiers to the ignominious death of William, taken by the English soldiery trying to revenge the death of his beloved wife Mirren and baby son Willie. A wonderful telling of a story relegated to legend and history. A must read for anyone intersted in this period of history, or even if you just enjoy a real good yarn.
