On his journey to Scotland, Edward Waverly finds himself in the heart of rebellion the Jacobit uprising of 1745.

Don Roxburgh

Overall, I enjoyed reading this novel, but I found the frequent use of untranslated quotes in Latin and sometimes Gaelic (?) detracted from my enjoyment. Having said that, I learned a lot about that period in history, and the book was definitely worth reading.
