The House by the Loch

Kirsty Wark

Scotland, 1950s

Walter MacMillan is bewitched by the clever and glamorous Jean Thompson and can’t believe his luck when she agrees to marry him. Neither can she, for Walter represents a strong and steady and loving man who can perhaps quiet the demons inside her. But their home on the shores of Loch Doon soon becomes a prison for Jean, and neither a young family nor Walter’s care seem able to save her.

Many years later, Walter is with his adult children and adored grandchildren on the shores of Loch Doon, where the family has been holidaying for generations. Yet the shadows of the past stretch over them and will turn all their lives upside down on one fateful weekend.

The House by the Loch is the story of a family in all its loving complexity, and the way it can, and must, remake itself endlessly in order to make peace with the past.
