Dunnottar Castle, Scotland, is the home of the Clan Keith, close consorts of the royal family. Secrets abound, both with the Keiths and King Charles I. Wm. Keith, the patriarch, is the wealthiest man in Scotland; he desires to be the kindest. John Keith, his brother, has a forbidden love in London, so is anxious to join the Civil War. Robert Keith, Wm.'s oldest son, goes to battle with his mother hoping that he will find a wife. The story is an in-depth look at war, love, greed, devotion and suffering. One of the favorite characters is the scoundrel, Drake, who shows up at the most inopportune times.
