About the Author
Archibald Joseph Cronin, born in 1896, was a novelist, dramatist and writer of non-fiction who was one of the most renowned storytellers of the twentieth century. His best-known works are The Stars Look Down, The Citadel, The Keys of the Kingdom and The Green Years, all of which were adapted to film. He served as a Royal Navy surgeon during the First World War before graduating from medical school. During an enforced holiday from his medical practice due to ill health he composed his first novel, Hatter's Castle, with which he enjoyed immense success and which launched his career as a prolific author; he never returned to practicing medicine. He died on 6 January 1981 (aged 84) in Montreux, Switzerland.

An excellent read. Perfect train material.
Based in a fictional Scottish village Finlay, Cameron and their housekeeper Janet, look after the good folk in their village. The book itself is fine but woe anyone, particularly female, that crosses him. In the most part they are straightforward stories. nothing over dramatic. At least one story in my view shows both Finlay and his creator Cronin in a bad light. Not all stories have a happy ending, and yes people die. It may be fictional but I would not be surprised if Cronin based at least some of these stories on his own experiences. Highly recommended but be prepared to dislike him at times.
