These insightful stories vividly evoke rural life in Scotland as seen through the eyes of the young protagonist. The immediacy of such details as riding a bike at speed, the ringing of a bell, the rituals of Halloween as well as the authenticity of the Scots language, all contribute to a powerful re-creation of a past age. In the easy flowing style one senses an artistic sensibility. "Edith Buchanan's work recalls a pastoral Scotland before the age of technology. In the musicality of the language one hears an echo of Lewis Grassic Gibbon, Jessie Kesson and the Canadian writer Alistair MacLeod."

- Valerie Thornton. Writer and creative writing tutor
