This is a wonderful book, I found it difficult to put down yet I didn't want it to be over. Katherine Stewart shares the story of her and her families life on a croft in the North of Scotland. A life full of richness, warmth and companionship. She has the ability to make you feel like you are experiencing nature and the elements first hand. There was so many times during this book that I felt Katherine was sharing her wisdom of life. A wisdom that should be passed onto many generations to come. A book to enjoy and savour, it will leave its memory with you...just as any visit to the hills and lochs of North Scotland will.
