Fourteenth-century Scotland suffers under the heel of England’s King Edward, but James Douglas refuses to give up the fight for freedom. Above all else, James fears that his life and his own dream–of a free Scotland–might be lost to Edward’s lust for conquest. As James wages a guerilla war to drive out the invader and reclaim his birthright, King Edward brings a vast army to crush the Scottish resistance. In the midst of the brutal war, even the woman James loves is threatened by his implacable sense of duty.
In a conflict poised to reach its bloody finale, the Scots and English cross swords in a reckoning that will determine Scotland’s survival.
