In Edinburgh, Drew Stalker has become Scotland’s most eminent young advocate, with the highest honours within his grasp. Only scandal can bring him down – and scandal in the form of his bastard son is about to re-enter his life. His sister Mirrin faces a different threat to her hard-won respectability. As Tom Armstrong’s eyesight fails and her farm’s future become uncertain, Mirrin must draw on all her courage to survive.
