As an 18 yr old teen, I didn't expect to find much in the many pages of this book, but I had heard about it from several people and gave it a try. What I found was a whole new idea of how I could live out my life. The way that Jane Porter writes, though hard to read at times, gives much more depth and meaning to the story. The pinnacle of the story for me is the character of William Wallace. He is a well known historical figure, but the way he is described in this book, gives another side to him that I found astounding. His example of real man-ness is phenomenal. I would recommend this book to anyone with the preface to read past the words and into the real life aspect. Enjoy the book!
