Flora’s lesson in Scottish bravery isn’t a Highland charge on a misty morning in April, but in putting oneself in the line of fire to help the needy, friend or foe. The tale of Flora MacDonald teaches us what 18th century Highland women and men valued. If she was on a side, it was that of comfort and tradition. Flora MacDonald’s Scottishness is not in her act of rebellion, but in her act of compassion and her steadfast longing for a sense of home. This, all those who are drawn to their ancestral home can grasp; and in this Flora MacDonald becomes all of us — courageous, comforting, holding our traditions as prized possessions, and yearning for Scotland, for home. It is clear that she left her mark in America, but not as a Scottish rebel.
