White Rose Rebel by Janet Paisley
White Rose Rebel is incredibly readable, pacy, lusty, rousing and richly imagined. It is the story of a couple torn apart and set against each other, finding themselves on opposite sides of the battle during the Jacobite Rebellion. Anne Farquharson is elated when the Jacobites rebel in 1745 and horrified when her husband, Aeneas MacIntosh, joins the government army. She raises his clan and, with her lover at her side, joins the rising to become its legendary 'Colonel Anne'. Janet Paisley explores the grand themes of civil war, love and marital discord, loyalty and betrayal, women's rights and national identity with an unforgettable cast of characters and with utterly captivating storytelling.
