Thanks for this recommendation. I often come across battered copies of Jane Duncan's books in secondhand bookshops but I didn't know anything about her and the naff dustjackets haven't proved sufficiently enticing to make me part with my money. But your review has now made me want to look out for her.

Sandy

okok .. I give in.

I'll give it a whirl

Linda and Sandy: good!

I read all the 'My Friend...' books many years ago and loved them all. I always fancied going to the Black Isle and Jemimaville, the town where the first books were based on but have never got round to it and I only live along the Moray Firth coast from there but have never made it. All the 'My Friend...' books are wonderful and take you from the North of Scotland to the Caribbean. Amazing journeys and inspiring writing.

Linda, I didn't know that some of the books were set far from Scotland (though I read that Jane Duncan lived abroad for some time). I'm looking forward to reading more of them.
