I might as well start of this group with that of one of my beloved works of Sir Walter Scott, that of Waverley of Waverley-Honour, set in the year of 1745, following the 1715 struggle to emancipate Scotland from Hanoverian fetters.

Scott has such a magnificent style that delights in full and frank description yet discreet enough to hold suspense in his novels that evoke both romance and patriotism.

Yet the story is one that is a cautionary tale and sad, for me at least, that ended in circumstances probable but unlooked for.

A fantastic read nonetheless.
