A dangerous, troubled frontier - where cross words soon lead to crossed swords and a brawl can start a war. This is the explosive situation on the Anglo-Scottish border in the 1560s, when men like Ker of Cessford, Warden of the Scottish Middle March, struggle to keep order over a hot-headed people owing more allegiance to their surnames than to the Crown. Peace-loving families depend for their livelihood on their cattle and for their defence on their solid stone castles. Gavin Ker of Slitrig, eldest son of such a family, seeks a wider world .... but a shattering experience lies in wait for him.
