In the fourteenth century Scotland, a feisty red-headed girl is raised in a remote glen on the Isle of Arran by a reclusive guardian. Her illustrious parents, indeed her very existence, must be hidden from vicious relatives, including her birth mother’s sadistic husband, and the vengeful Edward I, King of England.

Her illustrious parents, indeed her very existence, must be hidden from vicious relatives, including her birth mother’s sadistic husband, and the vengeful Edward I, King of England. Her preconceived ideas actually cloud her viewpoint. At first she and friend Tom are peripheral to the Scot rebellion, but sink deeper into the conflict. Finally the war’s brutalities demonstrate painfully that they can neither isolate themselves on their island nor stand aside and watch. She has been short-sighted in more ways than one. The ideals she held may not answer in the long view, and what had once seemed true to her was not what it seemed.This is half of a pair from the collection "The Silent Grove".

    I'm a dumb American who doesn't know anything about Scotland's history so it's cool to see a YA book delving into it. I also thought it was cool that we see the war from the periphery. You get to read between the lines. I would have liked it better if Pippa had had more to do, but I guess her age was a restraint in various ways. Overall, a good book.
