"A Kingdom's Cost," is a fantastic story about James Douglas' attempt to avenge his father's death as well as that of William Wallace and somehow win back the lands his family once owned. He joins forces with King Robert de Bruce on the continuing fight to overthrow England and claim Scotland's independence. Along the way he meets Isabella, a beauty from the Highlands whose husband and brother have taken up arms with King Longshank's. Now bereft and unable to return to her home she begins to find love with James Douglas.
A wonderfully written historical novel that tosses in just the right amount of romance to appeal to both men and women. J.R. Tomlin is a spectacular writer whose works belong on the same shelf as those of Margaret George and others! A definite must-read for any historical literature lover!
