As the 14th century dawns, the brutal Edward Longshanks of
England schemes to steal Scotland. But a frail, dark-skinned boy named James Douglas defies three Plantagenet kings and champions the cause of his wavering friend, Robert the Bruce, to lead the
armies to the bloody field of Bannockburn. A thrilling saga of
star-crossed love and heroic sacrifice during the Scottish Wars of Independence.
