Duncan Mitchell, head butler at Crosteegan Castle in Eddleston, has been given the task of escorting another servant back to the castle. They wait in a hostelry in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket for the stagecoach to set off on its way through the snow-blanketed landscape.
It is 1869 and it’s not just the weather that has it in for Duncan Mitchell. To have any chance of survival Mitchell must rely on the help of two young people - the servant girl and a young, erratic monk.
Prepare to be transported back to Victorian times.
