Violet Jacob’s fifth and finest novel is a tragic drama of the 1745 Jacobite Rising, tightly written, poetic in its symbolic intensity, lit by flashes of humor, and informed by the author’s own family history as one of the Erskines of the House of Dun near Montrose.

Drawn back to these roots in her later years, Violet Jacob also wrote many unforgettable short stories about the people, the landscapes, and the language of the North-east. In this volume 14 of these stories are recollected and reedited as Tales from Angus. Edited and introduced by Carol Anderson
