"Saying goodbye to Scotland is the hardest thing Jenna MacDuff has had to do - until she met Lord Pembroke. Jenna's small clan has risked their lives traveling the countryside as masons, secretly drumming up support and arms for the exiled King James Stuart to retake the British throne. But their next job brings them into enemy territory: England. Jenna's father repeatedly warns her to trust no one, but when the Duke of Keswick hires the clan to build a garrison on his family estate, it seems she cannot hide her capable mind from the duke's inquisitive son, Lord Alex Pembroke. Nor her growing attraction to him. When he begins to return those forbidden feelings, she finds that she's thrust into a precarious position-- keeping her newfound friendship to the duke's son a secret from her father, while concealing her father's treason from an increasingly attendant Lord Pembroke. But there's a covert plan behind the building of the garrison. Will Jenna decide to keep her family's mutinous secrets and assist her clan's cause? Or protect the you man she's falling for and keep him safe? No matter which she chooses, someone will pay a deadly price"--Publisher's description.

This is decent YA historical fiction set during an interesting time period (18th century UK, with a focus on the Jacobites) with an intelligent, interesting main character that is, in my opinion, spoiled a bit by slow pacing. The book was, for me, slow to get going, even though I eventually got swept up in things. I also found one of the minor characters (the fiancée of the main character’s love interest) to be disappointingly one-note and stereotypical, which was frustrating to read about. I thought there was a lot of potential here, and parts of this book really flew by for me, but I wish it had something more to make it rise a bit more above the pack. However, for readers interested in British history, with an emphasis on Scotland and the Jacobite rebellion, there’s probably still lots here to enjoy and intrigue.
