Or, just because you aren’t paranoid doesn’t mean somebody is not out to get you.
A young woman who is also a healer disguises herself as a boy to deliver her mother’s deathbed missive to a Scottish Laird. Set upon by bandits, she’s saved by a Scottish noble. She saves him right back, and he accompanies her on her quest to make good on her mother’s dying wish. They are both surprised by the contents of the scroll she carries and it has far reaching implications.
