Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Ruth has returned to Edinburgh after many years of exile. Left rootless by the death of her estranged father, she is faced with the daunting task of sorting through his possessions. Amidst the dust of her old life, Ruth discovers a hidden diary from the eighteenth century, written by her ancestor, Thomas Erskine. As she sifts through the ancient pages of the past, Ruth is pulled into a story that she can't escape. As the youngest son of a noble family, Thomas' life starts in genteel poverty, but his extraordinary experiences propel him from the high seas to Lord Chancellor. Yet, on his journey through life, he makes a powerful enemy who hounds him to the death - and beyond. Ruth opens a door to the past that she can't close, and she meets a ghost in her family tree who wasn't invited. She will have to draw upon new friends and old in what will become a battle for her survival.
