Lillian Beckwith takes her experiences of moving to a croft of her own, and uses them as the basis of these comic adventures, once again set on the island of Bruach. Adapting to a totally different way of life provides many excuses for humour. In one story, beachcombing yields a strange find; in another, a Christmas party results in a riotous night’s celebrations. The eccentric cast of characters guarantees there is never a dull moment on Bruach
