Teaser Tuesday: Here Burns My Candle

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week my teaser comes from Here Burns My Candle, a family saga set during the 1745 Jacobite uprising in Scotland. This is a discussion book over at Royal Reviews. I haven't gotten too far along but so far so good. From page 104:
