Abstract:

"This memoir offers an American woman's uniquely privileged view into the pastoral Scotland of today. It is the author's account of her marriage to a Scottish landowner and of the years they spent together at 'The Guynd,' his large ancestral estate. We follow her steep learning curve in dealing with a grand and crumbling mansion still recovering from the effects of two World Wars, as well as an overgrown landscape, a derelict garden, troublesome tenants, local aristocracy, Scottish rituals, and a husband for whom change is anathema"--
