Quest for a Kelpie

It is 1745, and young Jeannie Main is a tough fisher lass in Nairn in north-east Scotland. She lives a simple, quiet life until a gypsy warns her of a greater fate than she ever dreamed: that she, a poor working girl, would decide the fate of two kings.

As Jeannie tries to comes to terms with her destiny, she is plunged into adventure and danger which could determine the future of her country. One final test remains: risking her life by riding the Kelpie, the most feared monster in all of Scotland.

This is a fast-moving, thrilling story set at one of the crucial moments in Scotland’s history. It was the winner of the first BBC ‘Quest for a Kelpie’ prize.
