Macnutt has done it! He has made the foray from his previous architectural, travel,
and cultural books into a work of unique fiction and has done it with great skill. The
Spectre of Stanhope Farm is written with imagination, creativity, and amazing insight and
attention to historical detail and research into the Scottish world and the place of the
diaspora. What an exciting way to explore the 1770s world of Prince Edward Island
through the character of Frank and the spectre of Stanhope. Sense of place, heritage,
genealogy, class, and mystery are woven together and exhibit a writer who has come of
age. Warmly recommended to Islanders and visitors to the Island and atl who are intrigued
by all things Scottish. I want to see that wall!
- Dr Jack Whytock, author and lecturer
