A retired rose grower faces up to a life-long lie, a trainee undertaker undertakes his first solo assignment, Mrs Santa takes revenge, a church organist is late for a most important wedding, a trouble shooter wishes he wasn’t, aging aristocrats relive their hippie youth… all are navigating the benefits and perils of auld acquaintance.

Pause for a moment and listen to their stories. Their lives may be trying, but unkindness meets its comeuppance.

Set mainly in Scotland, this is a book for your pocket, your briefcase, the glove compartment of the car or the bedside. It’s for dipping into when you’re waiting at the dentist, or on the commute, or just want a cuppa with a friend. The author hopes it makes you laugh sometimes, maybe recognise or empathise, and go back to whatever you were doing feeling you’ve had a break but haven’t had to eat chocolate to do so.  

Isla Plumtree lives in a cottage on a hillside in Sutherland overlooking forests, fields and the sea. Rich diversity of wildlife, glorious landscapes and the sense of history around every corner are the backdrop to daily life in this beautiful highland area of Scotland. A retired headteacher, Isla enjoys photography, studying moths and gardening.
