Overview

Half-Celt and half-Saxon, King David determined to take hold of his
backward, patriarchal, strife-ridden country and, against all the odds,
pushed and dragged it into the forefront of Christendom's advancing
nations.

This is a story of independence, single-mindedness and hard-headed
leadership. But also, through the turbulent years of his reign, it is a
story of devotion: to the woman he admired and loved, Queen Matilda.

Set in the 12th century, this is the incredible story of one of
Scotland's greatest kings: David, the monarch who made Scotland a power
for the first time, told by master of Scottish historical fiction Nigel Tranter.
