"At the age of twenty-two the author cut short her nursing career in Edinburgh to marry, against enormous family pressure, the charismatic Euan Macpherson, her psychology tutor and twenty years her senior. Not long after, Euan inherited the family estate of Glentruim in Badenoch and Sandra Macpherson found herself the lady of a large and dilapidated mansion." "This is the story of her time at Glentruim, in which she describes not only the hardships of life in this remote part of Scotland but also the pleasure she and her family took amid the extraordinary natural beauty of their surroundings." "With vivacity and humour she introduces the various characters of the local community, the events and dramas that punctuated their lives - not least the massed gatherings of Macpherson relatives of which she became an integral part. The Highland world is vividly evoked as Sandra recounts her efforts to combine a respect for tradition with the necessity of finding ways to make the estate pay in the modern world, from cookery to haute couture and opening the doors of her home to an American film company."--BOOK JACKET.
