Thirteen-year-old Elsbeth has been confronted and warned by the Patriots, and now she is anxiously watching everyone. Who has betrayed her family? And what will happen next? Davina Porter brings Elsbeth vividly to life with her spot-on Scottish brogue, and she moves smoothly between the various Scots--male and female--giving each his or her own specific accent. We see Elsbeth’s strong, tough grandfather, yet we also see his gentler side. We see tall, silent Mr. McCracken; timid Janet; warm, loving Mrs. Blair; and Mercy--all brought equally to life. And we agonize with Elsbeth and her fears over her own perceived lack of courage as she bravely confronts her enemies, friends, and family. A great history lesson is brought expertly to life. W.L.S.
