Caleb | 1 comments I read the book in junior high in 1995 and the book was quite old. It had to do with a young man that was caught up in or observed the events of a rebellion in Scotland (or or possibly Ireland).

I remember the Scots armed themselves with pikes and fought against cavalry. I think it took place in the 1700s.

The book seems like it could have been written by a GA Henty-like author. It could have been him for all I remember. It seems like it was easier to read than anything by Sir Walter Scott.

Reminds me a bit of The History of Henry Esmond by Thackeray, which is mostly a love story.

Caleb, that's a good start. Copy plot details (incl. main character, year read) from your message #1 to the topic header/title, so someone could recognize your book from that description alone. Many members only read the headers.

We have thousands of book requests. We close threads with vague headers.

Click the small "edit" link after the topic header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app. (On the Mobile website, there's a "Desktop version" link at the bottom of the page.)

Amanda | 52 comments Well, GA Henty did write In Freedom's Cause: A Story of Wallace and Bruce about William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. But that was the 1200s. . . .
