Summary 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. "Miss Seton's narrative is richly buttressed with the results of scrupulous research on the personages and the period. Her sole purpose is to tell a rousing good tale plainly and simply and this she does admirably." -- New York Herald Tribune.
