The Jacobite's Wife

About the Author

Morag has spent almost 30 years as an educational psychologist. She also has an MA in creative writing from the University of Manchester's Centre for New Writing. The story of the Earl of Nithsdale and his escape from the Tower of London has long fascinated her. However, looking further into this story, Morag realised that his wife Winifred was by far the more interesting character; her life shaped by the turmoil of late seventeenth century politics and her family torn apart by faith and loyalty. Winifred's motives for attempting to rescue her husband from the Tower remain a puzzle, since she was not a young or impulsive woman and she stood to lose everything; her home, her children and even her own life if she failed. Morag's knowledge of child development has influenced her attempt to understand Winifred and the forces that drove her to save her husband but there remains much scope for conjecture and for readers to reach their own conclusions.


"An impressive, lively narrative of a memorable woman who, aside from her one daring exploit, is lamentably little-known." Historical Novel Review; "Did someone say that fact is stranger than fiction? The story of The Jacobite's Wife certainly proves that point." Mari Griffith, Root of the Tudor Rose.
