Publisher Description:
The Battle of Culloden, 1746, and Bonnie Prince Charlie is defeated. Can three young friends from the 21st century ensure he escapes and that history stays on track? A time-travelling mission, a very big adventure. Three twenty-first century friends and an eighteenth-century prince have a date with destiny... It's the last week of the school holidays and twelve year old Caitlin Cameron is bored. But when her new childminder turns out to be the eccentric Bella Blawearie, otherwise known as Scary Lady, everything changes. Scary Lady lives up to her name. She seems able to read Caitlin's mind. She sees visions in a snow globe and tells the time from a patchwork clock. And things get even weirder when Caitlin and her two best friends, Lynette and Edward, accidentally open a time portal in an old tree and are hurled back through time to the eighteenth century. They find themselves caught up in the blood-soaked aftermath of the Jacobite defeat at the battle of Culloden, and discover they're there for a reason. A reason Scary Lady knows all about. But all the friends have is questions. What is the significance of the silver locket passed to Caitlin by her grandmother? Can the locket help them ensure Bonnie Prince Charlie makes the right decision about his future? And if they fail, will Scotland's history books rewrite themselves, meaning Caitlin and her friends will not even be born? Join them in their 18th century adventure as they make new friends, encounter great danger and strive to carry out their mission.
