About the Author
Born in Edinburgh in 1892, Dorothy Emily Stevenson came from a distinguished Scottish family, her father being David Alan Stevenson, the lighthouse engineer, first cousin to Robert Louis Stevenson. In 1916 she married Major James Reid Peploe (nephew to the artist Samuel Peploe). After the First World War they lived near Glasgow and brought up two sons and a daughter. Dorothy wrote her first novel in the 1920's, and by the 1930's was a prolific bestseller, ultimately selling more than seven million books in her career. Among her many bestselling novels was the series featuring the popular Mrs. Tim, the wife of a British Army officer. The author often returned to Scotland and Scottish themes in her romantic, witty and well-observed novels. During the Second World War Dorothy Stevenson moved with her husband to Moffat in Scotland. It was here that most of her subsequent works were written. D.E. Stevenson died in Moffat in 1973. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Read this before buyingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 March 2020
I don't mind reading books more than once, and I read this previously on my Kindle under the title "Shoulder the Sky". Ah well, still enjoyed this gentle tale.

A book to read for mind relaxationReviewed in the United States on 10 March 2020
The plot was rather unbelievable compared with other books by this author. I have read dozens. If you want to relax and read about nice people and not lurid sex, this book is fine. I have also visited the border towns and Scotland to know the sites mentioned in the D.E. Stephenson books and the descriptions are accurate.

Read the series...things happen but it's a lovely winter in Scotland.Reviewed in the United States on 9 March 2020
Read the series, but even if you start with this book, it's truly WELL WRITTEN, you'll find yourself underlining things or using your Kindle to note things. The premise that the woman has given up her art to live on a cold Scottish farm, at first put me off. Of course she really HASN'T>. She has HELP, and lots of it. She's painting people right and left. People that need to find each other DO, and it's happily ever after.
