About the Book

Set in the Scottish Borders shortly following the Union of Scotland and England in 1707, 'The Black Dwarf' is a novel by Sir Walter Scott. Purposefully shrouded in mystery, the novel's protagonist is a dwarf named Sir Edward Mauley, whose character is deemed a curse by those living in the area, who accuse Sir Edward of working with the Devil. The isolated figure of Sir Edward resides in a solitary cave nestled deep in the Liddesdale Hills. In this tale, we follow Halbert Glendinning, a young man seeking wisdom from Sir Edward regarding love and vengeance. Halbert yearns for Isabella Vere, but her betrothal is to a man who lacks her affection, leaving Halbert burning for payback for her father's betrayal. Sir Edward lends a hand to Halbert's cunning plans. But will Halbert successfully enact revenge? Set amidst the Scottish Borders, an area that deeply influenced Sir Walter Scott's work on 'The Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border,' the novel tackles themes of political intrigue, betrayal, loyalty, and love.
