Julia Brannan is one of my favourite authors, along with Diana Gabaldon and Susanna Kearsley.
Julia has written the Jacobite Chronicles, which is a captivating 6-book series about the last Jacobite uprising in Scotland, which ended with the defeat of the Highlanders and Bonnie Prince Charlie at the Battle of Culloden in April 1746.
The Jacobite Chronicles start in 1742, with Richard Cunningham returning home after his father’s death to discover that the inheritance he was expecting is only a dream, whilst his sister has been left a huge dowry, inaccessible to either of them unless she marries. His subsequent decision sets in train the events that occupy the Chronicles.
In the background to all this are the actions of the real-life Prince Charles, whose decisions were as life-changing for his followers as Richard’s were for Beth.
The books are well researched and written, with an unforgettable romance at their core, and characters that are well developed. Here are the names of the books, if you’d like to read them:
Book 1: Mask of Duplicity
Book 2: The Mask Revealed
Book 3: The Gathering Storm
Book 4: The Storm Breaks
Book 5: The Pursuit of Princes
Book 6: Tides of Fortune
