About Book

Book Description
Scott was uneasy about how The Betrothed would be received by the reading public, so it was originally published with The Talisman as Tales of the Crusaders on June 22, 1825. He shouldn't have been. The story here -- a sordid tale of Eveline Berenger and the de Lacys involving love, loss, seeming betrayal, and redemption -- was a good one; well received when published with The Talisman, and great fun to read now.

Download Description
With Wilkin Flammock, Henry held much conference, particularly on his subject of manufactures and commerce; on which the sound- headed, though blunt-spoken Fleming, was well qualified to instruct an intelligent monarch. "Thy intentions," he said, "shall not be forgotten, good fellow, though they have been anticipated by the headlong valour of my son Richard, which has cost some poor caitiffs their lives--Richard loves not to sheathe a bloodless weapon. But thou and thy countrymen shall return to thy mills yonder, with a full pardon for past offences, so that you meddle no more with such treasonable matters."
