It's 1943, and the war has brought rationing to the Hebridean Islands of Great and Little Todday. When food is in short supply, it is bad enough, but when the whisky runs out, it looks like the end of the world. Morale is at rock bottom.

George Campbell needs a wee dram to give him the courage to stand up to his mother and marry Catriona. The priest, the doctor and, of course, the landlord at the inn are all having a very thin time of it.

There's no conversation, no jollity, no fun - until a ship-wreck off the coast brings a piece of extraordinary good fortune.

    " One of my favourite books EVER! :o) "

    " Written just after the Second World War, this is the tale of two Scottish islands and the characters who live upon them. It wasn't as amusing as I expected but did amble along pleasantly enough. "

    " Dull. It perhaps got more entertaining when the whisky arrived but I was nearly halfway through and it hadn't made an appearance, so I decided life was too short and my bookshelf too packed to waste any more time. "

    " This was a fun read and left me wanting to get back to Monarch of the Glen. "
