Gallowglass is the story of a young woman, Margaret, who is forced to flee her home in Scotland after a terror attack leaves her family dead. Margaret is taken in by an American family and must learn to adjust to a new life, including public school and a new language. Margaret is determined to find her place in the world, but she is also haunted by the memories of her family and the terror that brought her to America.

The story is told in alternating chapters from Margaret's point of view and from the perspective of her adoptive brother, Charlie. Charlie is a troubled young man who is trying to come to terms with his own grief and anger. He is drawn to Margaret and helps her to find her place in the world. The story is fraught with danger, but it is also full of love and hope.; Remainder; 8vo; 272 pages; FSA.
