I am reviewing a copy of The Heir of Douglas through Open Road Integragated Media and Netgalley:
In 1748 Lady Jane Douglas (a Scottish Noblewoman) gave birth to twin boys in Paris. Five years later she and one of the boys would die in poverty. In her own country Lady Jane had been a person of consequence she was the only sister and presumptive heir to the richest nobleman in Scotland. She wrote to her brother a month after her twin boys were born.
At the time of the birth of the twins Lady Jane was fifty. This book talks about the case and the fight to discover if Archibald Douglas was Lady Jane’s son or not.
I give The Heir of Douglas five out of five stars!
