From the author of The Last Testament comes the true love of Bonnie Prince Charlie, her adventures in America, and her lasting legacy. In the popular genre trailblazed by Antonia Fraser and Phillippa Gregory, The Pretender's Lady, Alan Gold's meticulously researched novel, accurately opens history's pages on a peerless woman who helped change the course of history and whose legend lives on in Scotland today - Flora MacDonald.

This is her fictionalized life story - her relations with the prince, her flight to America, Ben Franklin's influence, and her return to Britain to lobby for peace. But what's hidden from history, revealed now for the first time in Gold's dazzling new work of fiction, is the result of Flora's and Charlie's love: a beautiful and talented boy raised on an American farm. But only she knows his true heritage and his claim to the world's greatest throne. And only the genius of Ben Franklin understands how to use this naïve boy to change the history of America.
