Descrizione prodotto



On April 16, 1746, Ailis (15) and Liam (16) are caught in the devastating Battle of Culloden and meet in the aftermath as British soldiers scour the moor, killing survivors. Together with Liam’s Scottish Deerhound, Duncan, they hide until they can escape.The British are sparing no one--young or old, male of female--to make sure the Scots do not rebel again. This begins their terrifying journey into Scotland’s Highlands in search of safety.

Pursued by the English officer, Carstairs, whose cold voice they first heard as they hid near the battlefield, they are helped and betrayed by other Scots. They find safety for a while with men protecting Prince Charles Stuart, heir to the Scottish throne. But are they really being protected, or are they going to be used to lure the English away from Bonnie Prince Charlie?

Ailis and Liam take shelter in ancient stone circles, where Duncan sees things they can’t, and where Ailis has dreams that guide her. Liam, from a family of bagpipers, who had gone to Culloden with his father, to pipe the men into battle, sees that war is not the exciting thing he thought it was, and retribution after the war is destroying Scotland.

Always, as they travel, Carstairs seems to find them, and as the mountains grow steeper, the enemy always after them, they grow closer to each other as they endure hunger and fear, and hope begins to fade. And Ailis’s dreams grow more frightening.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent portrayal of a historic period. 25 novembre 2013

The Author takes the reader to 18th Century Scotland where the reader sees through the experiences of a teenage girl and boy the genocide brutality of the British Army after the Battle of Culloden. Orphaned,they depend on each other and their loyal Deerhound for survival, while fleeing from soldiers. Having no home they journey to the West Highlands to find Kinfolk who may not accept them. With humor and pathos they escape, wary of Scots who are enemies and helped by Scots who care. The soldiers are a constant threat. The growth of their friendship and trust is the beauty of the story. Belief in other-worldly help was commonplace in that time period.

The description of the Highlands and the research of that period is commendable. The story is a worthy read for YA and Adults

5.0 su 5 stelle Powerful story; unforgettable characters 26 marzo 2013

This is a wonderfully written book by a masterful story teller who has you hooked from the very beginning when two teens orphaned in war set out to survive and find it is better for them as a team rather than individuals. It takes some time to build trust, then friendship and perhaps the blossoming of first love.
As they set out to try to find some relatives to take them in and not sure if they will be welcome, there are many obstacles in the way. They learn that together they will be able to succeed regardless of whether they find the family or if they are taken into the the family fold. This story reminds me of other stories of end of wars and perilous journeys home and not sure what you will find when you get there. If you liked Cold Mountain and Enemy Women, you will love this book.

What impresses me most about "Escape to the Highlands" is the author's ability to transport readers to 18th century Scotland. Williamson makes us believe we are there with the boy and girl who must find a way to survive on nothing but their wits and the innate resourcefulness of their traveling companion, a huge but lovable Scottish deerhound named Duncan.

This story is well-researched and well-grounded in the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden, at the end of which our hero, Liam, and heroine, Ailis, find themselves alive but in constant danger. One narrow escape follows another on their long journey to safety. Along the way, each finds in the other strength, determination, and friendship.

Sometimes funny, often riveting, and always engaging, "Escape to the Highlands" delivers a satisfying read.

5.0 su 5 stelle A compelling escape from the Highlands 6 dicembre 2013
Di Carole A. Carnahan - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This was the rare book which is equally compelling to young adults and regular adults. I found myself identifying with the two children as I followed them on their journey through difficult terrain, both emotional and geographical. The authors very evident knowledge of culture, history, the land, customs, and more gave the book realism and interest. I learned some history that was new to me.. For years I've seen references to the Battle of Culloden all over the place in literature without understanding the significance. Now I do - in spades!

This novel starts at the horrifying close of the Battle of Culloden, which was basically the English slaughter of Scottish rebels. Two adolescents, Ailis and Liam, survive with their Scottish Deerhound Duncan and start racing away from the British. The novel is full of near-death experiences, heartwarming instances of Scottish countrymen trust, and beautiful accounts of the landscape. It is the story of a generation recovering from a horrible, devastating trauma on a scale that is hard to imagine today. A good introduction to Scottish history for any young person.
