Reay Tannahill moves back to 15th-century Scotland, to a sensual, violent, jewelled world where a family as subtle as the Borgias is planning the murder of the king, and a woman yearns for a love that is forbidden to her. By the author of "A Dark and Distant Shore".

About the Author:

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.
