… Highlander in the French and Indian War. Book 1: Culloden to Quebec.

Of possible interest?

"De tha sinn a' deanamh an seo, Ewan ? What are we doing here, Ewan ? This is the question asked by Ewan MacKenzie's friend Alexander MacDonald. What could make a man fight for Bonnie Prince Charlie against the hated Redcoats , yet only a decade later become a Redcoat himself ? This is an epic tale of individuals, societies and nations in transition on both sides of the Atlantic. Ewan's journey takes him from wild Highland charges in the Jacobite Rising to massed Redcoat volleys in the two great battles for Quebec. Along the way, he will wade ashore ,under fire, on Ile Royale before the siege of Louisbourg and face Indian ambush on Forbes' Road to Fort Duquesne. Yet Ewan's greatest battle will be whether guilt, loss and revenge maintain their grip on his life when faced with the possibility of love and redemption. As a number of historical Scotsmen did in the years between 1746 and 1760, Ewan MacKenzie will swear allegiance to King George and make the transition from Rebel to Redcoat but what happens when he finds himself in the same army as the Redcoat who destroyed his home in the brutal aftermath of Culloden ?

"No Great Mischief If They Fall " explores a crucial period of change for the Highlander within British society. It is a surprise that such a vivid and important turning point has rarely been charted before. "No Great Mischief If They Fall." is a story which will remain with the reader long after the last word is read.
