Acclaimed Biographer Flora Fraser tells the true story of the ultimate Jacobite heroine Flora MacDonald, the 24-year-old who smuggled Bonnie Prince Charlies over the sea to Skye under the noses of government troops in 1746. But what happened to Flora in the years that followed? It is a tale that takes in marriage and emigration to America, where Flora finds herself caught up in the American Revolutionary War. A chance to discover a new side to a familiar historical figure.
