Warden of the Queen's March

Nigel Tranter

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Historical fiction

The gallant story of Thomas Kerr, loyal protector of Mary, Queen of Scots in the late sixteenth century.

Only eighteen years old when she returned to Scotland to rule, the beautiful but unfortunate Mary Stewart was in dire need of protection: from the savage religious intolerance of the time, from scoundrels in high places, even from the men she injudiciously married.
While John Knox, the Regent Moray, Lord Darnley, the Earl of Bothwell, David Rizzio and England's Elizabeth Tudor plotted and schemed, one man remained constant to his Queen. A loyal young Border laird, Thomas Kerr of Ferniehirst, struggled to protect Mary throughout her troubled reign. But even he could not prevent the tragedy that lay in wait.
