This is a novel of Scotland and two of it’s most devastating historical failures … the horrendous loss of a great patriot and hero, William Wallace, and the ancient story of the missing Scottish Royal Regalia last possessed by Alexander III. This king’s untimely and accidental death, when his horse strayed off a cliff in the darkness as the King hurried home to see his new bride, was unfortunate in so many ways. Scotland was immediately thrown into turmoil as it tried desperately to find an heir. but war ensued and lasted for many years. Through this period known as the Scottish Wars of Independence, the Royal crown and other artifacts were nowhere to be found. There were suspicions about who held them, but that was merely hearsay and despite many searches over the next 700 years, they were not found.
Fast forward to 2006 … 700 years later when our main character, a Canadian English Professor, Emma Walters, is summoned to Scotland to learn details of an ancient title and estate she is purported to have inherited through her deceased father … the father who rarely even spoke of his Scottish past. Emma’s story, for our purposes, begins that fateful morning in November 2006 when a Scottish solicitor telephone and informs her she must hurry to Scotland if she wishes to claim her Scottish birthright. She is shocked but curious and decides to at least check it out. She will soon discover that many mysteries surround this old estate. But the information which interests her the most is that of the missing artifacts … the Scottish Royal Regalia last held by William ‘Braveheart’ Wallace after he defeated the English at Stirling Bridge and was bestowed with the title of Guardian. Miss Walters has only days to make up her mind and her new ‘assistant’ Alex Wallace only adds to her confusion when she discovers he is holding back information and seems to have an unexplained personal interest in the estate.
