A Breath of Autumn

(2001)
A novel by

 
 
Kirsty MacDonald is a crofter on the idyllic Westisle in the Hebrides, an island she now owns. Her son, 'the Wee Ruari', has started school on the mainland, travelling by boat across the Sound to Clachan. Being separated from her son during the week is a wrench for Kirsty. Twice widowed, she misses the boy's father, who was tragically drowned, and also her husband's brother, who became her second husband - and who had secretly loved her. Kirsty is not entirely left alone though. As autumn arrives she is kept busy preparing for the winter and finds herself fully involved in the lives of her fellow islanders: fisherman Jamie, who is like her own son; his friend Euan and new arrival Enac. It is the appearance of a Canadian and his daughter that causes the biggest waves in the small community however. Kirsty is opposed to change but she soon comes to learn that not all change should be resisted.
