A Dark and Distant Shore, Paperback


'An ancient brooding castle...a dispossessed child...a lifelong passion for one errant man...wars, crises and feuds...' WASHINGTON POST.

Reay Tannahill's great bestseller is the story of an extraordinary woman's determination to win back her birthright - the remote and beautiful West Highland castle of Kinveil - sold by her father to a Glasgow merchant when she was seven years old. It is also the intricate picture of a family in the heyday of the British Empire, an epic story spanning almost a hundred years and stretching from Edinburgh to the Crimea, from an expanding America to the India of the Raj.
