Glitter of Mica
By (author) Jessie Kesson
The parish of Caldwell in rural Aberdeenshire is a stifling, unchanging and insular community, hard as granite but with occasional moments that glitter in sunlight like the flecks of mica in the bleak stone. Change may be in the air for Helen Riddel, daughter of the head dairyman at Darklands farm, who has returned from university, having seen what the outside world has to offer. But will she be able to cut her family ties to embrace a new life away from the narrow confines of Caldwell?
An unforgettable portrait of a world that has now vanished forever, Glitter of Mica is a moving evocation of a close-knit rural community in the early twentieth century.
