The Crown in the Heather
Scotland, 1290: two families vie for the throne. As Robert the Bruce becomes a true contender, his love for Elizabeth de Burgh, daughter of one of the supporters of Edward Longshanks, threatens his chances of becoming Scotland’s Ard Righ. Robert finds himself Longshanks’ vassal, whose heir Edward is bent on destroying. Robert is left with no choice but to fight for the crown he believes is rightfully his.
I fell in love with this book. The author brilliantly connects the reader with the characters. The story is told from three different points of view, and it makes the history of Scotland come to life. Well researched and well written, The Crown in the Heather is breathtaking. I can’t wait to read the rest of this fascinating trilogy.
