Historical novel set in Scotland during the 1715 uprising against the newly arrived Hanoverian king, George I, the successor to the last Stuart monarch, Queen Anne.

"Ere long thy homespun shall be changed for laces and velvets and thy young eyes behold hate and grief, love and death." In these words Moll, the old witch, prophesied the future of Adam, the nineteen-year-old boy whose parentage was shrouded in mystery. A strange talisman which he wore about his neck was his only heritage, and he deplored his red hair and small stature. When Sir Hector Keith, finding him in the garb of a despised Jacobite, demanded that he assume the role of Lord Bellcastonborough, he was dismayed; he was struck dumb with amazement when that devilish officer of the king compelled him to marry the gloriously beautiful Barbara MacGregor. Thus in the stirring period of the Jacobite uprisings does Mr. Farnol set the stage for his newest tale. [Suggest a different description.]
