This is the fifth in Scotts' Waverley novels, the others being;
Ivanhoe is the story of knights, yeomen, and the like. Though its genre is favorably historical fiction, it tells the tales of romance, power, and glory. A chief part of the book is the characters; they stay with the book in all circumstances, and are honourable persons. The setting is in Old England, but Scott tells it as though it is modern-day (despite the Old English drawl). This is a book of fantasies and is enjoyed by readers of a mature age.--Submitted by elainemaine.
