It's the kind of book that would make a good tv series for teatime Sunday family dramas - very much an 'All Creatures Great and Small' format but with people as the patients [mostly]. A remote South West Scottish community in the 1960's and early 70's is well described,with its quirky beauty and real characters that this young Doctor meets - some especially unusual,and well described. Based on real events but with all the names changed. Very human,nicely written showing the common touch ,with good natured warm humour, Its a good read, unputdownable and left me wishing for more.
