Lachlan's War Summary


Lachlan's War by Michael Cannon

On a wintry evening in 1941, Dr Lachlan McCready is on his rounds in the remote Scottish village of Rassaig when he comes across a silent, frightened evacuee boy who is trying to survive in one of Rassaig's poorest homes. Lachlan, also scarred by loss, sees that desperate times call for desperate measures and decides to take him under his wing. Meanwhile, down the road, some very different newcomers have turned up - three English land girls have 'come to help' much to the delight of the young men and the consternation of the local religious firebrands. 'A book that will delight for its humour and also go straight to your heart' - "Scotland on Sunday". 'An excellent book ...Cannon, in just a few words, can give a familiar image an arresting vitality' - "Literary Review".
