Flower of Scotland Emma Blair

I would class this as a family saga which I dont really tend to read apart from Penny Vicenzi who I love lol.

The story revolves around the Drummond family in Scotland they own a premium whisky making factory and seem to have it all until the outbreak of WWII.

We see the story from the viewpoints of several family members and their own individual experiences of the war.

Saga about the Drummond family. It starts well, but there was too much sex and violence for my tastes, early on in the book.

It was easy to see what had happened, so I didn't bother to read the middle. Unimpressed.

Shakespearean actor, Sydney lifeguard, Scottish newspaper journalist, American high school graduate, playwright and now number one best selling novelist, Iain Blair has packed more than most into his sixty something years.
