I don't particularly like the 1950's, so I didn't expect to be able to read and enjoy this novel. I liked the Scottish cultural content and I admired the inner strength of the female protagonist, Joanne Ross. It's odd to have a protagonist who is not the detective and who doesn't investigate the case when the book is a mystery. The actual investigator of the case is a reporter at the newspaper where she works. The problems with prejudice in this small Scottish town reminded me of a similar small town in England in the Maisie Dobbs novel An Incomplete Revengeby Jacqueline Winspear. This is nowhere near as good as An Incomplete Revenge, but it is a first novel. I liked the way this book was resolved and I'm willing to read the sequel.
