In the Pink with Avon Romance - On This Day in Scottish History
On this day in 1305, the English captured William Wallace near Glasgow. Scotland's Guardian was found guilty of treason, to which he responded,
I can not be a traitor, for I owe him no allegiance. He is not my Sovereign; he never received my homage; and whilst life is in this persecuted body, he never shall receive it.
He was a man exiled from society - handsome, unpredictable, and proud. Dark rumours surrounded his name. But Anne Burnett had signed a marriage contract binding her to Aiden Black, the Earl of Tiebauld. And although she′d never met him, she′s determined to keep her word and make theirs a marriage in truth. Because a well-bred lady with little fortune to recommend her has no choice.
When a Chattan male falls in love, strike his heart with fire from above...
As I look at my pictures from Alba, I imagine these words whispering through the fallen strongholds that once proudly guarded the Scottish Clans. The clans who wept for William Wallace. The clans who remain proud of his legacy.
