She shivered in surprise and terror as the ancient ghost fingered his kilt nervously. Slowly, joints creaking, he advanced. His voice, chains dragging across stones, rasped at her. qThe Blood! The Blood must return to Culloden Moor! It was shed for Scotland. And for Bonnie Prince Charlie! It must be restored to its rightful place-the soil of Alba!q He raised his arm to shake a gnarled transparent finger in her face. qTake it back, mistress, I beg of you..take it back! His craggy visage froze as they heard wheels crunch in the drive. She turned and the specter vanished. This is the story of a modern upper middle class family living in the upscale neighborhood of Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. Robert Cameron, the father, is a CPA with a prestigious law firm; younger than her husband, the mother, Sassy is a warm and whimsical interior decorator. Their four old son, Robby, receives little of his father's attention, which worries his mother. A husband's obsession with historic reenactments threatens to tear his small family apart when they purchase an old house that may be haunted. A jealous wife and a young son with second sight complicate matters as the ghost of a young soldier, a survivor of the Battle of Culloden, Scotland's last stand against the English, inhabits their life. His insistence that a bloodied relic in their possession be returned to the soil of Scotland wreaks havoc upon their world. An unexpected brush with death, the exposure of a beloved leader as a fraud, and a view into the reality of history puts things into rightful perspective.
