A theme wedding? An evening bash of the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism? Fleeing up a back stairs which suspiciously wasn’t there before she bumps into the specter of Sir Andrew “Dand” Ker d 1628 who instantly takes a strong liking to her – showing a “cow cumber in his britches” as the uaint Scots saying goes – and our time traveler is swept backwards four centuries into his arms and into the adventures of the Kerrs of Ferniehirst Catholic allies of the tragic Mary ueen of Scots It’s a demon haunted era and Root deftly exploits some of the promising material Dand’s cousin the Earl of Bothwell pops up repeatedly throughout the story “Wild Frank” Stewart 1562 1612 enjoyed a reputation as a warlock and in 1591 was arrested and accused of employing sorcery in an attempt to knock off Scotland’s King James VI fact not fiction James VI beueathed us the famous “King James” version of the Bible the most widely printed book in history Less known His Highness also considered himself an expert on witchcraft penned an 80 page treatise on demonology and was personally involved in the infamous North Berwick Witch Trials which led to the torture and in some cases execution of 70 plus victims The “Green Lady” herself predates the 17th century; references can be traced back to pre Christian Celtic folklore Nowadays the Scottish Tourism Board promotes a half dozen castles haunted by a green ghost but Root cleverly imagines for this now garden variety discarnate a complex mythological backstory which will send readers scrambling for their Bulfinch’s Root originally wrote “The Green Woman” in three weeks as an exercise for the 2013 NaNoWritMo National Novel Writing Month contest; it challenges authors to come up with a 50000 word novel in one month Besides pulling off that rather remarkable feat she managed to slip into her genre busting fantasy a final plot twist which caught me completely by surprise Halloween is coming soon My suggestion?
