Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Historical fiction

The fascinating 17th century tale of Scottish hero, Andrew Fletcher, laird of Saltoun and his thirty-year campaign against the Act of Union with England.

In 1678, Scotland liesunder the dark threat of union with England.
In an era of intrigue and bloodshed, Andrew Fletcher, laird of Saltoun, stands out as a man of ideals and integrity. His fearless and dogged opposition to the Treaty becomes a thirty-year campaign fought in Europe as well as his native Scotland. His eventual defeat is the defeat of a hero and of a cause so dear to his people that his name is glorified in Scottish history.
