When a nearby mineral spring, Saint Ronan\'s Well, becomes a popular vacation spot, the character of the little village changes, as it becomes infiltrated by a gaggle of wealthy tourists and by the influences of modernity.\"--BOOK JACKET. \"Saint Ronan\'s Well features a rich cast of players, from the sentimental proprietor of the inn, to the wealthy young gadfly living far beyond his means and constantly in search of easy money, to the town gossip, always with an ear to the ground. The characters wrestle their way noisily to a climactic finish: one dead in a duel, one dying of shame, one fleeing to a monastery, and one leaving for Spain. In the end, the excitement dies down and the tourists depart; only the innkeeper, Meg Dods, remains.\"--BOOK JACKET. \"Displaying the eclectic pageant of Scottish life with artful dialogue and an intricate web of plots and sub-plots, Saint Ronan\'s Well is a classic in the British literary tradition.\"--BOOK JACKET.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
