In a decrepit, Scottish castle overlooking the sea, Edgar Ravenswood dreams of revenge. Years ago, his father’s rival conspired to strip the Ravenswoods of their fortune. But fate is about to play a cruel trick. After a chance encounter, Edgar falls for the beautiful Lucy. Her father is the very man behind his downfall. Can love heal the wounds of the past, or is the romance doomed from the start? Moody and gothic, The Bride of Lammemoor is set amidst the upheaval caused by the 1707 Act of Union. But Scott also lightens the atmosphere with satirical depictions of Scottish stereotypes. A great read for fans of the Brontes or Daphne Du Maurier.

These books married exciting adventures with real events from Britain’s turbulent past. Among his best known poems are the epic The Lady of the Lake .Scott’s works remain a touchstone of Scottish and European literature. They’ve also inspired numerous movies, including 1995’s Rob Roy starring Liam Neeson.
