William Wallace said to his men in 1298 before the Battle of Falkirk:
'I have brought you to the ring and now you must dance.'
a novel by Bruce Leeming
Fast-moving and thought provoking, this novel brings vividly to life the constitutional dilemma facing Scotland, and indeed the United Kingdom, as the millennium approaches.
But for Willie Devine, a battling young journalist with a column on the
Glasgow Recorder, there is no puzzle. He is for a truly independent
Parliament in Edinburgh. Gillian MacIntyre comes from a quite
different social background but she is drawn to Willie by his ideals.
They fall in love.
Conflicting attitudes to this vital constitutional issue are given full play in this remarkable novel. Perhaps fictional enquiry is able to reveal people's inner feelings more honestly than any number of opinion polls.
Essential reading for everyone interested in Scotland's future.
