Product Description

Review

'Smith writes with a tight, effortless prose that pushes the story and characters to the fore. The Homecoming is mature and thoughtful: a simple but enticing tale told with great skill' Vicky Collins, Herald -- Herald 20041030

Product Description

In the tiny village of Westerbank in the south west of Scotland, the 1960s are not about rock'n'roll and drugs; they're about survival, making a bare living out of a struggling farm or working for a pittance at whatever job comes along. Nonetheless in this close community friendships go deep and the pub of an evening is a cheery place, at least until too much drink is taken.

Fifteen years ago, Joe McBride left Westerbank under a cloud, and in his absence life has moved on, the secrets he took with him disturbing only occasionally those who were caught up in them. But now Joe McBride is coming home, a changed man, and one who needs to face up to the past before it's too late. The truth about the mysterious death of a young girl fifteen years ago is about to come out, and nothing in Westerbank will ever be quite the same again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart warming homecoming 25 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lovely book about rural life in Scotland. The ups and downs of living in a close community. The background darker side gave the story a mystery which kept you guessing. The characters were engaging and endearing. Nice read.

An OK read, bit predictable. Lots of things going on. Not the most memorable book I have read. But worth a read.

Enjoyed the storyline but found it a little bit long winded. But will read another of her books in the future.
