Do the traitors think, cried Wallace, "that by robbing Scotland of her annals, and of that stone, that they really deprive her of her palladium? Fools! fools! Scotland's history is in the memories of her sons; her palladium is in their hearts; and Edward may one day find that she remembers the victory of Largs, and needs not talismans to give her freedom."

I liked this book. Which is one reason I was disappointed in Braveheart. The movie is a pale shadow of the story here. :) Read full review

Jane Porter loves central California's golden foothills and miles of farmland, rich with the sweet and heady fragrance of orange blossoms.

Jane never minds a rainy day - that's when she sits at her desk and writes stories about far-away places, fascinating people, and most important of all, love. Visit her website at:
