Written by Jean Findlay
It is 1603. Life is a Babel of languages and glittering new wealth. George Heriot, jeweller to King James IV, moves with the Court from Edinburgh to London as James takes over the English throne. George becomes richer than the King and holds a special position with Queen Anne. Religious division and political intrigue come up against honesty and love of country. Findlay weaves the narratives of King, Queen and Courtier through questions of power, creativity and motherhood.
