Summary
The acclaimed historical novelist brings to life "a heroine for all ages"—Flora MacDonald, who saved Bonnie Prince Charlie and became his secret love (Bryce Courtenay). The Pretender's Lady, Alan Gold's meticulously researched novel, vibrantly portrays the life of Flora MacDonald, the woman whose bravery and wit helped change the course of Scottish history. She was the most famous Scotswoman of her day, who single-handedly saved Bonnie Prince Charlie after the Battle of Culloden, and stole his heart. But what's unknown to history—a speculation explored for the first time in Gold's dazzling work of fiction—is the result of Flora's and Charlie's love: a beautiful and talented boy raised on an American farm. But only she knows his true heritage and his claim to the world's greatest throne. And only the genius of Ben Franklin understands how to use this naïve boy to change the history of America
