The Silver Darlings


by Neil M. Gunn

‘No one else has evoked so sensitively the atmosphere of Highland life; we are taken into the intimate recesses of the characters in this story, simple characters outwardly, but with a thousand reticences, a thousand hidden or half-hidden scrupulosities, prides, thoughts and half-thoughts…the story is so fascinating and full of beauty; the setting is wonderfully presented’ – Edwin Muir
