In 1460, when clan feuds were rife, and the threat of English invasion

was ever-present, James III, one of Scotland's weakest monarchs, came to

the throne.

Before long, John, Lord of Douglas, a born leader and a man of

conscience and vision, found himself wishing that James' wise and

strong-minded sister Princess Mary had succeeded in her brother's place.

A fact compounded by the feeble king's habit of ignoring high-born

nobles, and succumbing instead to the influence of the astrologer and

alchemist William Sheves, Archdeacon of St Andrews, one of the cleverest

and most unscrupulous individuals in Scotland's history.

Continuing the story of Princess Mary Stewart that began in Price of a

Princess, Lord in Waiting is a gripping tale of 15th century Scotland by

Nigel Tranter, master of Scottish historical fiction.
