From the romantic history of Scottish Highlander outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor to the tragedy of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s last Jacobite Rising, the courage of Flora MacDonald, and the swashbuckling Irish story of Morty Óg O’Sullivan, WELCOME HOME is a tapestry of the great historical conflicts between England and the Celtic nations. Along the way, there are stops through little known incidents that bring Henry VIII, Bloody Mary, Mary Queen of Scots, Elizabeth I, and other historical figures roaring to the page, together with stories, music, and recipes that will immerse readers into the historic battles between towering personalities.

WELCOME HOME will make you reexamine what you thought you knew about the facts in your history books as well as the characters in your favorite novels.
An engaging collection that puts historical romance and the contemporary view of historical fact into context, perfect for readers who love Martina Boone’s Celtic Legends Collection, Nora Roberts’ magical trilogies from Scotland and Ireland, Diana Gabaldon’s OUTLANDER series, Susannah Kearsley’s modern gothic novels with a touch of history, or medieval or regency historical fiction featuring men in kilts.
