9780007114252: The Back of Beyond

Two young men from a remote Scottish village decide to make their fortunes in London, but can’t escape their close ties to home or the girl they leave behind…

Alistair Ritchie and Dougal Finnie have grown up in one of the most scenic villages in Scotland, but as they now have a desire to see the world, there is nothing to keep them there – not even Lexie Fraser, who’s been chasing Ally since they were fourteen. Lexie has troubles of her own: a sick mother and a missing father, his disappearance a complete mystery. She’d like nothing better than to cling to Ally, which just makes him more determined to break free.
But the lads aren’t destined to stay away forever. Marriage and babies follow – and so does war. London is no place for young wives and children, and where could be safer than the north of Scotland, the Back of Beyond? But what will their city-raised families make of it – and the folks they left behind?
