Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
The late and greatly missed Nigel Tranter (b.1909-d.2000) was not only one of Scotland's leading historians, but was also the premier writer of Scottish historical biographical fiction. If you were to organise his books chronologically they would form an almost complete biographic history of Scotland from the earliest times to the Highland Clearances. I started to collect his books as they were published in early 1970s and acquired each new title until the last, issued posthumously in 2007. I had not revisited this book for some time until just recently and I found it just as absorbing as the first time that I read it.

Once again Tranter brings to life a turbulent period of Scottish history and the reign of the two Queens, Elizabeth of England and Mary Queen of Scots. As usual Mr.Tranter's prose paints a vivid picture of the people and their times and his meticulous research and breadth of knowledge brings to life the borders and the reiver families. Perhaps not my favourite of Tranter's works but still an excellent novel.

Thank you Mr.Tranter, for your contribution to literature, your prolific output which would keep any reader content for years, and your determination to bring readable Scottish history to the people.

You are sorely missed.
