Lady Margaret Murray lives on the Scottish Border. She does not belive she will ever marry, have a home of her own, or children. When the opportunity comes along for her to marry, she grabs the chance. She gives herself heart and soul to a stranger.
Sir Walter Scott is caught trying to get his cattle back from his neighbor, Sir Iagan Murry, who stoled it. In order to save his men and his self from being put to death, Sir Walter agrees to marry Sir Iagan's oldest daughter. With the never ending trouble between England and Scotland, Margaret soon finds herself caught between her brothers and the husband she has come to love.
Ms. Scott writes a very enjoyable read that is rich in history of the time. Ms. Scott's next book is due out in September 2008. It is about Margaret's sister Amalie, called Border Lass. This will be another must read.
Captured in 1388 in the act of stealing back his own cattle, young Sir William Scott faces hanging, then gets one other choice--to marry immediately his captor's eldest daughter, the lady Margaret Murray, known by all as Muckle-Mouth Meggie. With the line between England and Scotland shifting daily, the Earl of Douglas wants to win back every inch of Scotland that the English have claimed; whereas the equally powerful English Percies (under Hotspur) want to win back the land between Northumberland and Edinburgh; and the Murray family is caught in the middle, shifting its alliances to try to survive. Uncertain whether she is English or Scottish and abruptly married to Sir William who is staunchly loyal to the cause of Scottish independence but who also has promised he'll never take up arms against her family, Meg Murray learns two things: first, Will's word is his bond; second, her favorite brother is spying on Douglas for Hotspur. As Sir Will faces the dilemma of honoring his word to the unscrupulous Murray without betraying Douglas, Meg must choose between betraying the husband with whom she is rapidly falling in love, or betraying her own family and best-loved brother.
