S.G. MacLean - The Redemption of Alexander Seaton (2nd Hand Paperback)
Banff, Scotland in the 1620's.
A young man walks unsteadily through the streets. Is he just drunk or is there something more sinister happening? When he collapses in front of two sisters on that dark, wet night, the women guess that he's been poisoned.
His body is discovered in the house of Alexander Seaton - a fallen minister, the discovery of whose clandestine love affair has left him disgraced.
Why was the body in Seaton's house? And why would anyone want to murder this likeable young man? Seaton sets out to find answers, embarking on a journey not only through the darkest part of other men's souls, but also his own.

"In this haunting and evocative novel, Shona MacLean has created a historical world that is so convincing that you feel you are in the cold, dark, northern rooms of her imagination, eavesdropping on her characters. The Redemption of Alexander Seaton is an unforgettable reading experience." - Amazon.
"This was a solid and enjoyable historical mystery set in Scotland in 1626. The main hero, Alexander Seaton, is a disgraced would-be minister of the Church of Scotland who is obsessed with guilt and tormented by his lack of faith. He's certainly a compelling character and I grew to like him more and more as the novel proceeded and his past history is slowly clarified. His change of outlook throughout the book is depicted in a subtle and very convincing manner." - Goodreads Review.
Shona (S.G.) MacLean was born in Inverness and brought up in the Scottish Highlands. She obtained an MA and PH.D. in History from Aberdeen University. She is the niece of writer Alistair MacLean.
