Marcus MacDougall is an eleven-year-old boy living in 18th century Scotland and his life has been flipped upside down. His father, Christopher “Chip” MacDougall, has been accused of crimes he didn’t commit and forced to flee, lest risk being beheaded. Determined to find a way to clear his father’s name, he must rely on his only friends, his sister Anna and a boy named Robert Hughes, to help him in his quest. Nothing is going to stand in his way. Not even being confined to a wheelchair.
