Publisher's Description

Margaret, Agnes and Thomas are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in but it means that they are forced to leave their home and their parents for a life of hiding on the hills. If you were a covenanter in the 1600's you were the enemy of the King and the authorities. But all you really wanted to do was worship God in the way he told you to in the Bible. Margaret wants to give Jesus Christ the most important place in her life, and this conviction might cost her life. THERE IS DANGER ON THE HILL FOR MARGARET. THERE IS DANGER EVERYWHERE IF YOU ARE A COVENANTER.

Editorial Reviews

I think I can honestly say that I wrote Danger on the Hill in the space of about ten or twelve days in total. I spent a day at the National Library in Edinburgh and then it just happened. Not much is known about the Wilson children and after Margaret's death the other two just disappear off the pages of history - but this story needed to be told. And those facts that we do know can't fail to touch our hearts. I found my own background of Psalm singing essential to understanding this young girl and her history. I've used that extensively throughout the book to give that necessary authenticity to the struggle of the Covenanter church of the 1600's.
