Doctor Finlay of Tannochbrae
Doctor Finlay of Tannochbrae
by A.J. Cronin
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Finlay, 29 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't read it, but my elderly mother loved it, enjoying rereading old tales by A J Cronin, one of her favourite authors, now sadly forgotten by many. He was a very interesting writer, a doctor who covered the conditions of his day with full knowledge of the social injustices.

KJV Emerald Text Edition KJ530:T Hardback with Jacket 40: Authorized King James Version (Bible Akjv)

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Hardback Bible, 29 Jun. 2015

My mother's old Bible was falling apart and a replacement was needed. It isn't too easy to find a copy which has a decent size of type - one would think that some of the editions were for ornamental purposes, rather than for reading! This one has a good size of text, and is hardback which makes it stronger.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Katie Morag Island Sories, 24 Jun. 2015

This is a lovely book, one which I often give as a gift to new baby girls. Mairi Hedderwick's illustrations are really lovely, the books can be read to little ones and once they can read they can have the pleasure of reading them. For adults reading the stories there are always interesting things in the illustrations which lurk in corners that hadn't been seen before - making it fun for adults as well!

This a beautiful book. I bought it years ago when it came out first, now had to buy a copy to send to New Zealand to a friend for her birthday. The illustrations by Keith Brockie are wonderful and Polly Pullar's text is good and informative. Between them, they cover all the breeds of domesticated livestock of Scotland. It is a book to treasure.

This is a beautifully written book by an author who lived as a child on the island of Ulva, his recall of details of the place and the people is lovely. Gaelic phrases used are well translated, the historical information is extremely well told - a small island with an interesting past tale to be told.
