Ancient Scotland is the backdrop for masterful historic novels by two of our finest writers. Margaret Elphinstone's The Gathering Night is a story of conflict, loss, love, adventure and devastating natural disaster; it may be set in our Stone Age past but it resonates as a parable of our troubled planet 8000 years on. Janet Paisley sets Warrior Daughter on Skye, and takes as her inspiration the historical figure of Scathach, a fierce warrior woman and forerunner to Boudicca.
