Lovely writing in a lackluster story. All the tools of a great writer: imagery, foreshadowing, a nice job of interweaving themes. Grandpa and grandfather are two memorable and contrapuntal characters. But the history was simplistic, a lot of repetition and such xenophobic Scottish posture that I could not give this more than 3 stars.
