Scottish Historical Fiction

My Truth Lies in the RuinsMy Truth Lies in the Ruins This is a majestic novel of sweep and power drawing the reader into the events of an epic period in Scotland's history, the struggle for Scottish independence. It also shares with us the intimacy of a passionately-felt love story. The writing flows smoothly as the scenes come to life, scenes of great bravery, deep suffering, intense joy and tender love. Eleanora and William Douglas lived in a different time and a different place, but the issues they faced, the choices they confronted, the obstacles they had to overcome, the love they shared, resonate with us today. Against the backdrop of the sere, wild beauty of the Scottish countryside, we are drawn into the human drama of the war for Scotland's freedom, as William fought at the side of William Wallace, "Braveheart"; as well as the personal struggle of William and Ellie to be free of the domination of the English king. William fought and risked all in defense of his truth, his core values and the issues of bravery and courage, the fight for freedom and against tyranny are as relevant today as they were in those years so long ago. An immense scholarship and wealth of research supports and illuminates every page of this novel and serves to immerse us in all the details of the rich tapestry of medieval life, without distracting us from the essential beauty and truth of the story. The photographs that illustrate the novel are wonderfully evocative of a bygone time, as the story breaths life into those old and hallowed stones. This is a novel to be enjoyed by lovers of history, historical fiction, great adventure and timeless love, as well as by those interested in seeking a deeper understanding of the human heart.
