Lady of the Glen: A Novel of 17th-Century Scotland and the Massacre of Glencoe by Jennifer RobersonLady of the Glen tells of a time and a place like no other - when political treachery and royal intrigue ruled the day ... a time when countrymen battled for their freedom and usurpers sought crowns. At the novels center is a love story of breathtaking scope: a man and a woman - enemies from birth - know from the moment they meet that they will lie in each others arms someday. But their love, for centuries forbidden, comes at the most dangerous of times. Lady of the Glen tells of Catriona Campbells enduring love for Alasdair Og MacDonald, the second-born son of her clans most powerful enemy, the Laird of Glencoe. It is MacDonald who alone shows the young Catriona kindness in a harsh and violent world. As the years pass, the heart proves stronger than the sword, and they boldly pledge their love ... to handfast forever. While the Dutch King William conspires against the Scottish rebels who seek to return the exiled James Stuart to the throne, Catriona and Alasdair share a passion that joins them forever - although the lovers become pawns of war ... and of history.
