Have you ever received a phone call that changed your life? Emma Walters is about to have that experience. Up until now, this University of Victoria, Canada, Professor of English Lit has lived an extraordinarily quiet life with very few complications, but that is all about to change. She quickly learns that she will inherit a very unique 700 year old Scottish estate … if she agrees to certain unusual conditions attached to the legacy.
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. He explains that without William Wallace’s influence, inheriting the title and estate of the House of Traymore would not have been possible.
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.
J. Robert Whittle and Joyce Sandilands come together once again in their most complicated and exciting collaboration yet ... one that involves Joyce's own ancient history linked King David I and the building of Torphichen Preceptory in the 1140s.
