Leaving her home in the sunbleached courts ofAvignon, gently nurtured, seventeen-year-old Ninian rides into the darkness and strife ofScotland to marry a stranger. 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. Tied by blood on one side and by an overwhelming -- and forbidden -- love on the other, Ninian, growing from her careless girlhood into a beautiful woman and an artist of brilliance and power, is precipitated into violence and tragedy, in which she, too, has a vital part to play.

Reay Tannahill was born and brought up in Scotland, and now lives in London. Her first historical novel, A DARK AND DISTANT SHORE, was an instant bestseller, and PASSING GLORY won the 1990 Boots/RNA Romantic Novel of the Year award.From Publishers Weekly:
This big historical novel by the author of A Dark and Distant Shore teems with adventure and romance. The setting is 15th century Scotland, a wild country poised on the edge of civil war. Cameron Gavin has risen from a modest birth to become Bishop of Glasgow and advisor to King James I. Intrigue flourishes in both Catholic church hierarchy and Scotland's court, and when Cameron makes an enemy of one of his archdeacons, Columba Crozier, Crozier's scapegrace, illegitimate son Adam plots to ruin Cameron's reputation. Matters are further complicated for the Bishop when he finds himself attracted to Adam's beautiful cousin, Ninian. Tannahill's vital and memorable characters move through a narrative laced with irreverent humor, passion and fascinating glimpses of history. In every respect this is a marvelous story, told by a master storyteller.
