It is a crucial moment in Britain’s history: Prince Charles Edward Stuart’s attempt to regain his grandfather’s crown from the Hanoverian King George is in the balance. Jeannie Main is warned that she will make a king and break a king. But how could a wee fisher lass do such a thing? What will bring her four times into the shadow of the gibbet? And why should she risk her life by riding the Kelpie, the most dangerous monster in all Scotland?
Winner of the first BBC Quest for a Kelpie prize.
