"Flora MacDonald: the Most Loyal Rebel tells the story of the heroine of one of Scotland's most enduring legends; the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie over the sea to Skye. When the Prince was trapped on the Hebrides, after his defeat at Culloden, at huge personal risk Flora helped him to escape diguised as her maid. But Flora's story is much more than an account of this one moment of glory. It is a tale of bravery and deprivation on both sides of the Atlantic. Flora and her husband Allan emigrated to Carolina, only to lose everything in the American War of Independence. And while Allan was a prisoner of war, she suffered appalling hardship, but like other women and children enmeshed in that war, she suffered in silence. Hugh Douglas's research in Scotland, North Carolina, and Nova Scotia reveals these 'lost years' in a book that is at once a biography, a social history, and an adventure story which pays tribute to a clan and a remarkable family within that clan."--BOOK JACKET.
