Turn of the Tide, Paperback / softback Book

Turn of the Tide Paperback / softback

Part of the Munro Scottish Saga series


Scotland 1586. A land in turmoil, a family torn apart. An ancient feud threatens Munro's home, his family, even his life. Munro owes allegiance to the Cunninghames and to the Earl of Glencairn.

He escapes the bloody aftermath of a massacre, but cannot escape the disdain of the wife he sought to protect, nor inner conflict, as he wrestles with his conscience, with divided loyalties and, most dangerous of all, a growing friendship with the rival Montgomerie clan. Intervening to diffuse a quarrel that erupts between a Cunninghame cousin and Hugh Montgomerie, he suceeds only in antagonising William, the arrogant and vicious Cunninghame heir. And antagonising William is a dangerous game to play. Set against the backdrop of the turmoil of the closing years of the sixteenth century, Turn of the Tide follows the fortunes of a fictional family trapped at the centre of a notorious historic feud.

Known as the Ayrshire Vendetta, it began in the 15th century and wasn't finally resolved until the latter part of the 17th, the Cunninghames and Montgomeries dubbed the `Montagues and Capulets' of Ayrshire.
