Review: Prince Across the Water

Prince Across the Water
Prince Across the Water by Jane Yolen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book gets high marks for being what I needed it to be: a serviceable and not-unpleasant way to learn about Bonnie Prince Charlie, the Jacobites, and Culloden. Low stars because at no point in the reading did I feel excited or scared or invested in the characters in any way. There were also several characters whose stories felt spliced in, (Mairi was one), and I wondered if, at one time, they had a bigger role, and were victims of uneven editing.
