Cappuccino and Porridge
By Duncan MacKenzie
Spanning time, distance and twists of fate, this unique story is rooted in WW2 and pays warm tribute to three central characters – the author’s father from Harris, his stepfather from Skye and his father-in-law from Tuscany.
Through their personal accounts we learn of deprivation and suffering watching in amazement as their three very different stories begin to intertwine and finally emerge as one remarkable storyline of happiness and gratitude when Duncan marries Alessandra, his lovely Italian wife. This is an absorbing human life story told from the heart. A story of love, four times over, that will have lasting appeal.
Following his early years in Banffshire then Dumfriesshire, Duncan MacKenzie has lived in Edinburgh. Retirement from legal practice has allowed him to write, to share the fun of grandchild care with his wife and to spend more time in South Harris. He has always found time for indoor football and golf, especially with his sons.
