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.

Book Excerpt

diate past of her family was that her father's people had once been rich, and as important as their name implied. 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.

The plot is formulaic and not much more than a frame for the travelogue of Scotland that is really the main character. Yet, the individual characters are endearing and villainous in their turn, and there is enough of a plot that you do want to find out how it all comes out in the end (even though you KNOW the Williamsons wouldn't disappoint one with a less than gloriously happy ending). Enjoy!
