Glitter of Mica

Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.


In the parish of Caldwell, in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire, life goes on much as it always has done for those who work on the land. Isolated and inward looking, it is a place where no one challenges the way things have always been, and everyone knows exactly where they stand in the local hierarchy.

But up at Darklands farm change is in the air. Helen Riddel, daughter of the head dairyman, has been to university and seen what the outside world has to offer. Now she must choose between family ties and the chance of a new life away from the narrow confines of Caldwell.

An unforgettable portrait of a world that has now vanished forever, Glitter of Mica is a moving evocation of a close-knit rural community in the first half of the 20th century.

'One of the literary treasures of modern Scotland.' - WILLIAM DONALDSON
