Those already obsessed with Scotland the Brave can join me this week at Royal Reviews as I uncover the fiction and facts surrounding one of the bloodiest periods 0f Scotland's history - The Wars of Independence (1296 - 1357). We're talking William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Edward the Longshanks! This won't be a tedious history lesson and there'll be no pop quiz at the end but I do promise to share with you some fascinating, lesser-known facts about these events and point you in the direction of some really fabulous fiction should you want to know more. I also welcome you to share (through comments) any great books or information you may have come across.
So strap on your time-travelling boots, dust off your broadsword and join me in Braveheart Week!
Here's a little snippet to get you in the mood:
