From towering crags to misted moors and formidable fortresses, Lady Macbeth transports readers to the heart of eleventh-century Scotland, painting a bold, vivid portrait of a woman much maligned by history. 

Lady Gruadh, called Rue, is the last female descendant of Scotland’s most royal line. Married to a powerful northern lord, she is widowed while still carrying his child and forced to marry her husband’s murderer: a rising warlord named Macbeth. Encountering danger from Vikings, Saxons, and treacherous Scottish lords, Rue begins to respect the man she once despised–and then realizes that Macbeth’s complex ambitions extend beyond the borders of the vast northern region. Among the powerful warlords and their steel games, only Macbeth can unite Scotland–but his wife’s royal blood is the key to his ultimate success.  

Determined to protect her son and a proud legacy of warrior kings and strong women, Rue invokes the ancient wisdom and secret practices of her female ancestors as she strives to hold her own in a warrior society. Finally, side by side as the last Celtic king and queen of Scotland, she and Macbeth must face the gathering storm brought on by their combined destiny.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lady MacBeth Well researched and very interesting. It certainly give one a totally different picture of these two dynamic, colorful characters than the one portrayed in Shakespeare's "MacBeth".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lady MacBeth This is a most interesting read because the picture it paints of Lady Macbeth and Macbeth himself is at such odds with the prestigious Shakespearean play "Macbeth". The book makes one appreciate and reflect upon the purpose and timing of a piece of literature. Who to believe; a modern researched writer or a piece of well written Tudor propaganda. Most likely the truth lies somewhere in between.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lady Macbeth Enjoyable read. Written with historical license, but so little is known of this woman that it is quite forgivable and fun to ponder.
