The Family Tree - August/September 2004
Peggy's Scottish Books


Kathleen Ernst:  Betrayal at Cross Creek.
     Technically this is a young adult novel, but grown-ups will enjoy it as well.
     Elspeth Monro, 13, and her family have very recently come to North Carolina from the highlands.  She's apprenticed to her best friend's mother, a weaver.  Tension is building in 1775, as Scottish settlers who have been in the colonies for several generations seek independence and recent arrivals, like Elspeth's family, maintain loyalty to the British King.
     A good look at the loyalist Scots at the beginning of the American Revolution.
 
M. C. Beaton:  Death of a Poison Pen
    Laconic Hamish Macbeth, constable of a wee  highland community, is called upon to look into poison pen letters in Braikie.  The anonymous letters' accusations are wildly improbable as well as malicious.  When death intervenes Hamish realizes the writer may have accidently struck a truth serious enough for murder.
    Hamish's observation skills and his knowledge of human nature enable him, once again, to solve the case and further annoy his superior (in title only) Blair.
 
Respectfully submitted,
