Fiction, Historical fiction

The stirring 13th-century story of Thomas the Rhymer, visionary and poet.

Little is known about Thomas Learmonth of Ercildoune, vassal and esquire of the Earl of Dunbar, poet and prophesier known as 'Thomas the Rhymer'.
During the reign of the Scottish King Alexander III, a time when the sword ruled over all and the treachery of the powerful earls had never been greater, True Thomas became renowned for his extraordinary gift of prophecy - a gift which has echoed through the centuries.
In this enthralling novel Nigel Tanter brings him and the wild and rugged times in which he lived to vivid and memorable life.
