Another Time, Another Place

By (author) Jessie Kesson

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.
