A gripping tale of love, war and divided loyalties with
Scotland in open rebellion against the Union with England.
It's 1745 and 21 year old Edward Waverley, a newly commissioned red-coat officer, is posted to
Scotland on the eve of Bonnie Prince Charlie's violent bid for power. His father is a rising minister in the ruling Hanoverian state, but the beloved Uncle who brought him up is an old Jacobite, loyal to the exiled Stewart dynasty.
Waverley is accused by his Commanding Officer of a treasonable flirtation with the enemy, he joins the uprising in a fit of pique and helps defeat an English army at the battle of Prestonpans.
When he finds out that he has caused the arrest of Uncle, he returns to
London to try to clear his name.
