Christina Hall's childhood and early adulthood memories charmed readers in To the Edge of the Sea and Twice Around the Bay, in which life in a closely-knit island community is vividly evoked. Now she continues her story and leaves her sheltered Hebridean upbringing behind. As her army husband is offered a variety of exotic posts, Christina finds herself lugging her young family and assorted dogs across the globe, embracing different countries and cultures, moving from the Far East to Wales and then out to South Africa, where apartheid is still firmly established. Through all these experiences, Christina maintains strong links with her family and never loses the wry, clear outlook she developed growing up on South Uist. Upon retirement she returned home to the Scottish Highlands, having lived and visited many places in the world, and happy to be back in the best of them.
