Book Description

4 Jan 2001
It is 1990. The Argyll villages of Seileachan and Eisdalsa are threatened with a takeover by developers. Will the promised influx of overseas investment bring prosperity to the islands, or destroy their unique character forever? Initially, the proposals create division between friends, neighbours and even within families, but when the full extent of the plan is revealed, old adversaries band together to undermine the plans of their scheming landlord. Temporary residents Dr Alan Beaton and the Australian Jack McDougal discover that their pasts are closely linked with the islands and each other. While each young man focuses his attentions on the enigmatic Flora Douglas, she disregards their advances, concentrating all her energies on the fight against the developers...

4.0 out of 5 stars an excellent "easy read" 12 Nov 2001
Format:Paperback
This book was a lovely "easy read" - it wasn;t heavy going, with no sex or violence. It was also written about an area I know and love and could just picture myself there in the story. I must admit I found it hard to put down, and missed it when I had finished.
