This was good, not great. I found it a little hard to get into initially. However, as the story progressed I enjoyed the development of the friendships between Maggie, Meg, Anna and Angus. I found Maggie's husband, Ellis, and his friend Hank to be thoroughly obnoxious - but their attitude toward others was thoroughly believable especially given the time frame. The mention of the war seemed to be thrown in as an afterthought at times. Good location descrpitions of Scotland and the Loch Ness monster area. Decent read.
