The much awaited second helping of Mary J. MacLeod’s tales of Papavray in the 1970s and her experiences as the island’s district nurse, culminating in her move to a very different new life in California.

Mary J.’s anecdotes of life on a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides brim with charm, humour and common sense. She shares heartwarming and amusing tales of crofters and ceilidhs, pesky cows and stubborn drivers, treacherous bogs and a suspected haunting, but also the deeply sad story of a desperate mother and a baby’s untimely death.

For the district nurse, human tragedy, joy and laughter are all in a days work.
