Past Master Master of Gray trilogy 3

by Nigel Tranter

Past Master Master of Gray trilogy 3 Synopsis

Past Master tells the story of Patrick, Master of Gray, in the era of Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots, and of his remarkable daughter Mary. With the end of Elizabeth I's long reign in sight, Patrick, Master of Gray, is determined that James VI should succeed to the English throne. Nothing can be allowed to stand in his way - not even his own daughter's happiness. And so Mary Gray and her lover, Ludovick, Duke of Lennox, are to be caught up in a savage game of power politics, shaped by personal ambition and religious bigotry. 'Through his imaginative dialogue, he provides a voice for Scotland's heroes' Scotland on Sunday
