They say that little boys always used to carry a piece of string in their pockets, for just in case.

This is the 4th of Beckwith's Hebridean memoirs, and the second I've read. I picked up four books by her in my local used bookstore, and have been utterly delighted so far.

Maybe they not politically correct in these 21st century times

Although the author seems to be laughing at the locals and their bizarre customs, often enough she is herself the butt of the joke. Warm-hearted escapist fiction.

I read this book years ago, but loved it. Like the rest of her books it was so funny.
