Honours Even

In 1649 Charles II left his exile in the Netherlands and sailed to
Scotland. Arriving at the small fishing village of Garmouth, he faced a
mixed reception from the minister of the Kirk.

The exiled king was to remain in Scotland for a year, learning more
about his northern subjects, while the English tried to adjust to life
under the puritanical heel of the Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell.

But Cromwell was soon to turn his attentions to matters north of the
border. He coveted the Honours of Scotland – the crown, sceptres and
sword-of-state – symbols of hope and the nations’s honour.

The gripping story of Charles II’s year in Scotland and Scotland’s brave
stand against Oliver Cromwell, told by Nigel Tranter, master of Scottish
historical fiction.
