Pardon me - the order is a little mixed up and too change it is too difficult! Pardon me - the order is a little mixed up and to change it will be to challenging.

It was here the muse visited him and he wrote is novels.
The Waverley Novels, as Scott’s 26 novels came to be called
were the world’s first real historical novels and the world’s first best-sellers.
They paved the way for the great popular novels of the Victorian age,
influenced Puskin and Tolstoy as well as George Elliot and Dickens,
and earned him the money to buy land, to plant trees and to build Abbotsford.

These are the beautiful bay windows in his library,
overlooking his beloved Tweed River.
