Fascinating & strange book. From the back cover: "In the 1640s, in a Perthshire valley, a servant girl is delivered of a child with astonishing powers. He can talk to animals, inflict sores, heal illnesses and see the dead. His story moves to Edinburgh and as far afield as Bohemia, before bringing him back to the rowan tree at Culteuchar. The relentless struggle with his grandmother and her malevolent spirit is only resolved in a confrontation as vivid and violent as any horror movie. But the Warlock's greatest feat is reserved for the woman he loves and loses, who meets her death with dignity on the scaffold." Winner of a Scottish Arts Council Award
