Lizzie continues her plans to give women, and the poor, a voice in local politics but she changes her mind about getting involved herself. At the same time, one of her childhood friends returns from exile in Australia opening old wounds which cause her to set out a new plan. Following her 18th birthday, Lizzie, makes a life-changing decision to…
It was all rather unbelievable to Emma, yet certainly worthy of investigation. Then, in Scotland, she meets Alexander Wallace who explains the remarkable connection between their two families who have been inseparably linked since the events of the Scottish Wars of Independence in the early 14th century.

Now, tossed into the depths of this very old Scottish mystery concerning the man known as Braveheart, she is haunted by bewildering dreams, stories of missing artifacts and the involvement of the Knights Hospitaller, making her wary of accepting this inheritance of such immense responsibility. Duty bound, it falls on Alex’s shoulders to persuade her that the benefits of the 21st century will easily override her historical demons … despite being far from convinced himself.
