The Heather Moon is the moon for falling in love. It comes in August before the honey moon when the heather is in a glory of purple blossom.

They were the MacDonalds of Dhrum, an island not far from Skye, but they had lost their money; and while old Mrs. MacDonald was still a young married woman (it seemed incredible that she could have been young!) she and her husband, with their one boy, had come to her old home near Carlisle.

Enjoy!
