by | Read by Samuel Gillies

Historical Fiction • 25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1961

This is the first book of Dorothy Dunnett's vast, lively melodrama, The Lymond Chronicles. Set in sixteenth-century Scotland, where 4-year-old Mary Queen of Scots reigns in name only, it follows the adventures of a swashbuckling high born outlaw named Francis Crawford, known as Lymond. The book seems to include the entire population of the British Isles at the time, which could pose a problem for some listeners, but Samuel Gillies does a fine job with the English and Scottish accents, and fans of historical fiction should have a lovely time.
