Abstract:

"After the sudden death of his father in Kerrera, a young child was enthroned as Alexander III, King of Scots." ""The chanting grew stronger, candles flickered in the doorway, out into the sunshine came clergy and bishops, behind them a blaze of armorial surcoats, and between the two a space in which walked the small boy in his white robe. The procession moved towards the mound, eastward of the church, on which stooda throne? Yes, possibly a throne, one with carrying-staves, and under its seat a roughly shaped boulder. Or possibly there was no throne, simply the boulder itself, shrouded in cloth-of-gold until the moment when the procession reached it." "In the last couple of days the child had seen his mother's grief and been told, and gradually understood, that his father was dead ... Now there was this endless line of bobbing heads, and what would happen next? ... ""--Jacket.
