About the Book

Charles Stuart came to Scotland seeking support to dethrone England’s King George II and replace him with his father, James Stuart. If the Highlanders will join his uprising, his promise to them is freedom from English tyranny, as well as guns, artillery and provisions for the battle. However, when the Battle of Culloden began, weary Highlanders had no weapons or food. They faced the King’s British Army who were trained, armed and ready for battle. Those Highlanders who were not killed were taken prisoner.

Janet Cameron’s husband Ewan, captured by British soldiers has died. Janet, unaware of his death, desperately searches for him. Barely escaping capture themselves, Janet and her six-year old nephew, Daniel Cameron, must return to the ruins of their Highland home where the family’s inheritance is hidden.

Janet fears Daniel is the last surviving male of the Highland Cameron Clan. Their trip will be a perilous one as the King’s son, The Duke of Cumberland, called “The Butcher” has given orders to find and kill all Highlanders. Thousands of the King’s soldiers, determined to find and capture Charles Edward Stuart, are searching the Highlands. Janet must return home to uncover what is rightfully hers in order to survive and protect the dying Cameron Highlander line.

About the Author

When Beth discovered she had Clan Cameron ancestors, it was natural for her to seek more information about them. After many trips to Scotland, she says the most memorable thing was when she first saw the misty mountains and glens of the Highlands. It felt as if she had returned home and she feels the same every time she returns to Scotland.

Beth has written several articles and short stories about English and Scottish history. Survival of the Blood is her first book. Beth is a certified family counselor and resides in southern Missouri with her Scottish bag-pipe playing husband and two dogs, Tam O’Shanter and Millie.
