Description: Before William Wallace, before Robert the Bruce, there was another Scottish hero...
In 1296, newly knighted by the King of the Scots, Andrew de Moray fights to defend his country against the forces of the ruthless invader, King Edward Longshanks of England. After a bloody defeat in battle, he is dragged in chains to an English dungeon.
Soon the young knight escapes. He returns to find Scotland under the heel of a conqueror and his betrothed sheltering in the hills of the Black Isle. Seizing his own castle from the English, he raises the banner of Scottish freedom. Now he must lead the north of Scotland to rebellion in hope of defeating the English army sent to crush them.
Reviews: "Freedom's Sword is a highly readable, well researched book that relates the background behind the English invasion of Scotland at the end of the 13th century and sets the scene for England's defeat at the battle of Stirling Bridge. By crafting a personal story around Andrew Moray and other Scottish patriots like Robert Bruce and William Wallace, the author takes the accepted facts and gives you a perspective that is hard to get from a history book. If you like historical fiction, you'll like this book. The characters are developed enough to draw you into their lives. Historical "purists" shouldn't find the fiction distracting as the author adheres to the facts very carefully. I began the book on a plane and found myself wishing the flight was a little longer so I could finish it in one read."
