Family Portrait, Island Style Sep 19, 2004
This is the author's fictionalised study of her family in Orkney, the island group just north of the mainland of Scotland. I found it well framed and written, with a glossary of Orcadian and Scottish dialect (although I needed it less than I had anticipated). The story is given color and depth with interesting tidbits of 19th/early 20th century farm and household technology, daily culture, and social reality. The characters are neatly drawn and well developed. A good read altogether.
