A novel by

“The extraordinary tale of an amazing woman.”Mari Griffith, author of Root of the Tudor Rose

18th Century Scotland: Strong-willed Lady Winifred Nithsdale has already seen her mother, father, and brother imprisoned for their support of England’s Catholic king. While she wants to be loyal, Winifred tries to protect her husband from imprisonment, or worse, the scaffold. But will she escape with her own life intact?

Based on the true story of Winifred Maxwell, Countess of Nithsdale, and set in the early eighteenth century, this remarkable and powerful novel is rich in detail, character, and history.

"An impressive, lively narrative of a memorable woman who, aside from her one daring exploit, is lamentably little-known.” —Historical Novels Review
