Synopses & Reviews
These long celebrated recollections of Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus have enjoyed a devoted following since their first publication in 1898. In her vivid and inimitable style, she describes her earliest years in Edinburgh and London, the trauma of a broken engagement and the agonies of her father as his legal and political ambitions collapsed.
Moving from Edinburgh and London to the Scottish Highlands, the author captures the texture of life in the early years of the 19th century. Describing the trauma of a broken engagement, she eventually finds her own happiness in marriage to an Irish landowner.
