Our customer reviews

In 16th century Ayrshire the old feud between the Cunninghames and the Montgomeries still rages. Munro, a follower of the Cunninghame chief, the Earl of Glencairn, finds himself trapped between the two sides, as circumstances throw him together socially with the Montgomeries and he finds that he likes them. There are fights and ambushes and dark deeds aplenty here but much on the domestic front too and the women, especially on the Montgomerie side, come over as real, warm, individual characters that we feel we know. They cope with housekeeping and bringing up children as modern women do - as well as with the aforementioned dark deeds of their menfolk. This is a page-turning read bringing history to life with some memorable writing. My favourite line, apropos of educating the masses, was '... if we can all spout Cicero, who will clear the middens?'show more
