New York, NY, USA: Bantam Books, 1974. Second Printing. Mass Market Paperback. Good. Item #554721
This is a novel of the American Revolution and more particularly of its regional origins and first conflicts. It faithfully and dramatically restores one of the most romantic but least known episodes in our early history. For this is the American story of Flora MacDonald, whose Scots valor and feminine compassion once saved the fugitive Bonnie Prince Charlie. Though the famous thrills of that episode in the Hebrides are freshly illuminated here, the story centers in the North Carolina sequel -- an almost lost chapter of American history which is even more moving and more revealing of Flora's nobility and brave resolve. As always in an Inglis Fletcher novel, action, adventure and romance abound.
