The book picks up Steven & Meg Caraford's married life on Schoirhead Farm in Scotland. Son, Samuel and daughter, Christianna, join the family. Steven & Meg make a splash with their farming tenancy and are offered another tenancy at Bengairney. This farm is substantially larger, 180 acres.
Warm, homespun with many details of farm life in Scotland during the early 1950's.
Gentle story.

I thoroughly liked this story of life in rural Scotland in the 1950's. The characters were down-to-earth and the sort of people I would be glad to call friends. As they dealt with some challenges of life my heart went out to them. Now I want to "discover" some of the author's other books.

Although I was born on a Yorkshire farm and went to school there I have lived most of my adult life in Scotland, UK. I am a widow now but my husband was a dairy farmer. My son continues farming and my younger daughter has a farm ice cream parlour. They both live near to me so they keep me up to date with life and changing trends and I enjoy my grandchildren’s company.

I did not start writing until
