Riassunto: Lillian Beckwith's settling in on the island of Bruach and having a croft of her own, is the basis of these comic adventures. Adapting to a totally different way of life provides many excuses for humour and the eccentric cast of characters guarantees there is never a dull moment on Bruach. In one story, beachcombing yields a strange find. In another a Christmas party results in a riotous night's celebration.
L'autore: Lillian Beckwith (Lillian Comber) was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916. She went to live in the Hebrides before the Second World War and stayed there for nearly twenty years, living first on Elgol, Isle of Skye, and later on the nearby and smaller Isle of Soay. Her hilarious initiation into crofting life is captured in the heart warming book 'The Hills is Lonely'. She acquired her own cottage, and living and working on her own croft gave rise to a series of magical Hebridean books such as 'The Sea For Breakfast'. She retired to the Isle of Man, where she died in 2004.
