Memoirs Of A Highland Lady by Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus

Memoirs Of A Highland Lady by Elizabeth Grant

These recollections of Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus have been popular since first published in 1898. The recent discovery of the original manuscript has now made it possible to publish the complete text in one volume. Elizabeth Grant describes her earliest years in Edinburgh and London, where her father, Sir John Peter Grant, pursued his legal and political ambitions. Holidays were spent amongst the leisured members of her class in spas and resorts, and at Oxford where her uncle was Master of University College. She describes the trauma of a broken engagement and her agonies, echoing the problems suffered by her father, as his legal and political ambitions collapsed, with the direst of consequences for the family. An Indian judgeship provides an unexpected avenue of escape from Sir John Peter’s creditors. Her memoirs end with the 33-year-old Elizabeth finding her own future happiness in marriage to an Irish landowner – the subject of the sequel, “The Highland Lady in Ireland”.
