KIRKUS REVIEW

The little known story of Catholicism in Scotland is here retold in romanticized historical form -- by way of tales of well-known as well as little-known sinners and saints, poets and philosophers, kings and queens, hermits and warriors. Beginning with the time of St. Ninian in the 4th century, going through the Reformation, the persecution that followed, the bleak eclipse of the Catholic Church, the resulting bigotry on both sides up to the reestablishment, the book focuses a new perspective on what has hitherto been a one-sided and frequently prejudiced view of this segment of Scottish history.
