A Historical and General Magazine for the Stewart SocietyeBook - 2011
This is a collection of sixteen short stories based in Kirkallen, a fictitious village in the highlands of Scotland. The main characters are members of three generations of the Stewart family who deal with life in their own not always entirely legal way. Some of the topics are Geordie's efforts to combat the local town council who try to shut down his pig farm; the local school band; the annual garden and craft show; getting rid of unwanted suitors; New Age religion; and how the Stewarts survive Christmas and New Year. While this is a humorous look at life in a small town in Scotland, it does touch on a few more serious subjects such as the lot of farm women and some of the beliefs on their role that still persist to this day.
