Review: Lady Of The Glen: A Novel of 17Th-Century Scotland and the Massacre of Glencoe

Lady Of The Glen: A Novel of 17Th-Century Scotland and the Massacre of Glencoe Lady Of The Glen: A Novel of 17Th-Century Scotland and the Massacre of Glencoe by Jennifer Roberson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A "Romeo and Juliet" style telling of the events leading to the massacre at Glencoe at the end of the 17th century. It's of particular interest to readers who want to know more about the Jacobite Rebellion and events that led up to the defeat at Culloden.

I read this when it was first published, and the re-read was in anticipation of a trip to the Highlands this summer, including a trek to Glencoe. Roberson does an excellent job of bringing the land and its inhabitants to life.
