9780002713627: The Candlemass Road

From two forgotten incidents in the State Papers, the author of the work on Anglo-Scottish border history, "The Steel Bonnets", has woven a tale which presents the reality of life and sudden death on the reivers' frontier of 400 years ago, when lawlessness was "the custom of the country".

From the Publisher:

Having written the definitive history of the Anglo-Scottish "Border Reivers" in The Steel Bonnets, Fraser here gives us a robust fiction based firmly on Border fact. Lady Margaret Dacre leaves behind an aristocratic life in London to take control of lands formerly governed by one of the few good men, lately murdered, who has tried to live in the midst of the Reivers' lawlessness. What possible chance does she have in this "neglected and cursed" region? You'd be surprised, as it turns out...
