A historical novel based on a true story of the Jacobite rebellion, from 'a writer who has a special feeling for the dramatic' (Chicago Tribune).
This fiercely beautiful novel tells the true story of Charles Radcliffe, a Catholic nobleman who joined the short-lived Jacobite rebellion of 1715, and of Jenny, his daughter by a secret marriage. Set in the Northumbrian wilds, teeming London, and colonial Virginia-where Jenny eventually settled on the estate of the famous William Byrd of Westover-Jenny's story reveals one young woman's loyalty, passion, and courage as she struggles in a life divided between the Old World and the New.
