Review of Banners of Honor
A novel by Keith and Barbara Stuart
The saga, Banners of Honor, tells the story of Betsy Stewart's rite of passage. In 1692, in the Scottish Highlands, young Betsy, through courage and ingenuity, overcomes military assailants and escapes King William's massacre of the MacDonald clan. Many of Betsy's relatives and friends are butchered. In retribution, Betsy steals the King's treasure.
A British officer places Betsy at the crime scenes, unravels her identity and tracks her. As the story unfolds, we are drawn into witnessing Betsy's growth from a bold and independent girl of sixteen to a homemaker, community leader, teacher, business manager, and loving wife and mother. When she marries John MacDonald, she musters the strength to overcome many of the tribulations of married life: reconciling religious and class differences, learning how to handle separations creatively, facing the death of loved ones, and being an inspirational guide for her children.
Betsy's greatest challenge is the non-responsiveness and selfishness of her son, Kevin, who unwittingly commits treason, potentially bringing dishonor on the MacDonald name. Betsy finances Kevin's passage to the colonies. As he embarks, Kevin vows to find his purpose in life, to become worthy of redemption and the restoration of honor. Banners of Liberty continues the saga.
