9780006477204: The Candlemass Road

This is a beautiful, moving tale from the bestselling author of the "Flashman Papers". To the young Lady Margaret Dacre, raised in the rich security of Queen Elizabeth's court, the Scottish border was a land of blood and brutal violence, where raid and murder were commonplace, and her broad inheritance lay at the mercy of the outlaw riders and feuding tribes of England's last frontier. Beyond the law's protection, alone but for her house servants and an elderly priest, she could wait helpless in her lonely manor, or somehow find the means to fight the terror approaching from the northern night!

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...
