I've moved from historical mystery to YA mystery, and now this is to be historical drama- something you can really sink your teeth into and keen along with, as you hear the winds of change coming to one benighted family from the western isles of Scotland, in the early 19th century...(less)

“For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use to be anything else.”
Winston S. Churchill

“Death is an ascension to a better library. ”

John Donne
“More than kisses, letters mingle souls.”
John Donne

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“The writer Umberto Eco belongs to that small class of scholars who are encyclopedic, insightful, and nondull. He is the owner of a large personal library (containing thirty thousand books), and separates visitors into two categories: those who react with “Wow! Signore, professore dottore Eco, what a library you have ! How many of these books have you read?” and the others - a very small minority - who get the point that a private library is not an ego-boosting appendage but a research tool. Read books are far less valuable than unread ones. The library should contain as much of what you don’t know as your financial means, mortgage rates and the currently tight real-estate market allows you to put there. You will accumulate more knowledge and more books as you grow older, and the growing number of unread books on the shelves will look at you menancingly. Indeed, the more you know, the larger the rows of unread books. Let us call this collection of unread books an antilibrary.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
