Her path crosses that of Gavin Cameron of Kinveil, priest and Chancellor of Scotland. Laconic, ambitious and handsome, he is the one man the Stewart king dares to trust, the one man strong enough to save the kingdom from the civil war planned by the charming, implacable Archdeacon Columba Crozier and his bastard sun, Adam de Verne.

    Love this book so much that I read it once a year. Reay Tannahill's capture of the droll Scottish wit is unsurpassed, although Diana Gabaldon runs close these days (and it was to Tannahill that Gabaldon sent her first Outlander novel for pre-publication comment). I so wished this had been part of a whole medieval series.

    A beautiful, historical romance, set in rocky, wild Scotland. A very good read.

    Enjoyed this book, but A Dark and Distant Shore is by far the best of Tannahill's books.

    Purchased at The Bookery in Placerville, CA., June 29, 2013. Nice little haul from this pleasantly busy bookstore, had to narrow down our selections since we didn't want to overload our luggage :-(
