The Master of Stair

The Master of Stair  (1907) 
by Marjorie Bowen
A Gothic novel of love, hate, and betrayal, set against the backdrop of the Massacre of Glencoe. Original (UK) title: The Glen o' Weeping (1907).

"The Master of Stair is a story of Scotland at the close of the seventeenth century, dealing in the main with a plot to overthrow William of Orange, but more specifically with the hereditary feud between the clans of Campbell and Glencoe, and the treachery by which the latter clan was finally exterminated. [...] a book that mirrors back with uncommon fidelity the poignant joys and sorrows of a stormy epoch." —Review in The Bookman, June 1907
