The Stringless Harp

The Stringless Harp

In the newly united Scotland of the 850s, elite poets – like druids of the past – are power-brokers. Aidan, poet to the High King, Kenneth MacAlpin, treads a precarious path between contentious chiefs, and old and new religions, as he guides his foster-sister through the equally precarious terrain of the Second Sight. Historically-based and full of lyric imagination, The Stringless Harp looks to one of Europe’s oldest cultures in a tale of timeless integrity.
