In the summer of 1944, three Italian prisoners of war are billeted in a remote village in the north-east of Scotland. For most of the locals, their arrival is of little interest, hardly distrubing the quiet routines of their isolated crofting community. But for the young farm-worker's wife who has to look after them, the Italians bring with them a tantalising glimpse of another, more exotic world, reawakening dreams of a future removed from the harsh realities of crofting life. A moving portrayal of the tragic consequences of a clash of cultures, Another Time, Another Place is a haunting tale of love and war from one of Scotland's finest authors.

Review:

Her writing is marked by an elegant economy of language and a sharp understanding of country communities. --Trevor Royle

Jessie Kesson writes beautifully, her strong, delicate prose full of poetry and humour. --Daily Telegraph

About the Author:

Jessie Kesson was born in October 1916 in Inverness. Her childhood was spent in Elgin with her mother (she never knew her father), until she was sent to an orphanage at Skeene in Aberdeenshire. After leaving Skeene school she entered service, and in 1934 moved to a farm with her husband, who was a cottar. She combined a successful writing career with a variety of jobs, from cleaner to artist's model, and was a social worker for nearly twenty years, settling finally in London with her husband. The early years of her life influenced much of Jessie Kesson's writing. Her work includes the novels The White Bird Passes (1958), Glitter of Mica (1963), Another Time, Another Place (1983) and the short story collection Where the Apple Ripens (1985). In addition, she wrote poetry, newspaper features, and plays for radio and television. Jessie Kesson died in 1994.
