Returning to his native shores after a continental exile, he is quickly caught up in the plans of the men who are determined to return England to Stuart rule by placing the Prince on the throne.He is also caught up in another sort of affair -- of the heart rather than of state -- when he makes a marriage of convenience with the proud and beautiful Anne DArcy, whose love for him is so strong that he is willing to betray him in order to keep him near her. But the turbulent tides of fortune thwart Ann, and -- misinterpreting her seeming treachery -- Huntforth leaves her to join his fellow loyalists in the Scottish Highlands, while she retreats to the safety of the rival Hanoverian court.Their stormy and passionate relationship is then played out to its tragic end against a background of political intrigue and military upheaval.
