Product Description

Product Description

‘The Lord puts the salmon in the river like he puts the berries on the trees. They’re there for all of us, not just for the laird.’

The way the Bruachites saw it, poaching wasn’t a crime though you did have to keep an eye out for the local police. And it wasn’t just fishermen like Erchy and Hector who were experts – even a visiting vicar had been tempted by the fat salmon that filled the island’s streams and pools.

Like Lillian Beckwith’s other books about life in the Hebrides, Lightly Poached is packed with the enchanting and hilarious adventures of her island friends.

‘A beautiful book this, smelling of earth and sea, carrying the atmosphere of the crofts, and forcing you to laugh aloud’ Oxford Mail

‘Delightfully tangy and stylish’ Sunday Express

A good read and an interesting insight into Hebredian life. I have read several other Lilian Beckwith books and find them a relaxing read.

Takes one completely into Island life and all it's richness of character, seasons, vicissitudes, and beauty. And with such humour too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs more care in transposing to Kindle 10 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As with the earlier books I enjoyed this a lot. The omission of the fifth star is a reaction to a lot of poorly spelled words, or wrong words, in the Kindle versions.
