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.

Review by SwindonIan
I really enjoyed this novel - describing the build up to the Culloden battle. I thought it gave an interesting insight into Clan life - though it was rather 'bodice-ripping' in parts.
