Overview

Set during the Napoleonic War, The Ross Family Chronicles is filled with explosive action, unparalleled anxiety, tragedy, and mayhem.

A series of unforeseen, catastrophic events forever alters the simple lives of Tom and Maggie Ross, a Highland family from Nigg, Ross-shire, Scotland. Rape, an unwanted pregnancy, and mental instability plague Maggie after she is left to fend for herself without Tom, who is fighting in the war on the continent.

Meanwhile, Tom and his best friend, Red MacKenzie, are confronted with a desperate will to survive, not only in the bloody war, but also in a battle of wits against two psychopath soldiers from a rival regiment who are on a mission to kill them.

Circumstances cause both Tom and Maggie to commit acts which create unforgivable secrets-secrets they will take to their graves.

Will their family survive?

A novel laced with love, hate, war, murder, and above all, betrayal, The Ross Family Chronicles is difficult to put down once the first page is turned.

    A Masterful Drama that Keeps You Turning the Page!

    The book has an excellent plot and storyline. The characters are real and I found it hard to put it down once I started. The sub-plots blend well with the story and you can really sense the class struggle of the early nineteenth century highlanders of Scotland. An excellent fiction novel with the right blend of historic fact. Highly recommended!

    I very much enjoyed this story and found it difficult to put down, once started.

    A semi-historical novel with fictious characters, this book proved very interesting, easy to read and difficult to put down, once started.<BR/>It includes several colourful characters with different plot themes, with an intertwining mix which kept you motivated to see how the journey of each would impact the other. The end of this novel leaves you hoping for a sequel.
