Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Saying goodbye to Scotland is the hardest thing Jenna MacDuff has had to do-- until she met Lord Pembroke. Jenna's small clan has risked their lives traveling the countryside as masons, secretly drumming up support and arms for the exiled King James Stuart to retake the British throne. But their next job brings them into enemy territory: England. Jenna's father repeatedly warns her to trust no one, but when the Duke of Keswick hires the clan to build a garrison on his family estate, it seems she cannot hide her capable mind from the duke's inquisitive son, Lord Alex Pembroke. Nor her growing attraction to him. When he begins to return those forbidden feelings, she finds that she's thrust into a precarious position-- keeping her newfound friendship to the duke's son a secret from her father, while concealing her father's treason from an increasingly attendant Lord Pembroke. But there's a covert plan behind the building of the garrison. Will Jenna decide to keep her family's mutinous secrets and assist her clan's cause? Or protect the you man she's falling for and keep him safe? No matter which she chooses, someone will pay a deadly price" -- Dust jacket.

    Jenna MacDuff has never wanted to leave Scotland, but when her father and the rest of her clan are hired by the Duke of Keswick to build a garrison, she has no choice but to follow. Quick, educated Jenna has been raised by this small group of men, and she understands that their new lives in England are fraught with danger: the men aren't just freemasons but Jacobites, secretly fighting for the exiled King James Stuart. It's 1714 and Britain is filled with unease; Jenna knows to hide the truth from the duke's son, Alex. Despite mounting family tensions and an impending, unwanted arranged marriage, Alex finds himself drawn to the intelligent, fiery Jenna, who pushes him away for the sake of her family. Sackier (Dear Opl, 2015) balances her historical exploration of a tumultuous period against a plot laden with danger, betrayals, and a touch or two of romance. The Jacobite uprising might not be the most familiar historical event to teens, and this is a thrilling introduction. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
