The Glen O'Weeping

A novel by

'Fresh, vivid, exciting and enthralling ... ' - The Sphere

At 3 p.m. on the 13th February, a huge army of soldiers swept into the remote Highland Valley of Glencoe, a stronghold of the MacDonald clan.

The Master of the Stair sent them there.

Cruel and ambitious, he did not shrink from mass murder to satisfy his lust for power.

Jock Campbell led them.

At last his chance had come to rid Scotland of his old enemies and reign supreme in the Highlands.

Delia tried to stop them.

A beautiful Jacobite spy, she risked her life to warn the MacDonalds and save the man she loved.

Fighting against time and the evil madness or her opponents, Delia plotted secretly to avert the threatened tragedy.

The Glen O'Weeping is a passionate historical romance from a master of the genre.

Praise for Marjorie Bowen

'A book remarkable alike for its vividness and for its historical perspective' - Daily Express

'... one of the most novel features of Miss Bowen's book is the care she takes to see the point of view of Mary's lovers. She makes a plausible case for Bothwell and even joins the very select band of those who have something good to say for Darnley' - Times Literary Supplement

'Fresh, vivid, exciting and enthralling ... This is a fine book' - The Sphere

'A book in every way worthwhile ... as an individual contribution to the subject, Miss Bowen's work is of the exceptional class' - The Scotman

Marjorie Bowen was born in 1885 and is one of many pseudonyms the writer Margaret Gabrielle Vere Campbell Long used. She was one of Britain's most prolific authors of the twentieth century. Writing was more than just a hobby: her works were the primary source of financial support for her family. Between 1906 and her death in 1952, Bowen wrote over 150 books, garnering much acclaim for her popular histories and historical and Gothic romances. Alongside masterful descriptions and concise, efficient prose, she deftly rendered larger-than-life subjects in the minds of her readers. To this day, aficionados of the genres covet Bowen's work. Her other titles include The Sword Decided, Mary Queen of Scots, The Queen's Caprice, The Governor of England, Mistress Nell Gwynn and Dickon.
