Publisher's Summary

The Moorhouses are finally becoming "somebodies", which just makes Bel even more distressed by the behaviour of Phoebe and Henry - they don't seem to understand propriety.

Phoebe's beginnings were as the half-sister of the Moorhouses, the daughter of a Highland tinker. She has grown up into a beautiful and elusive creature of the world, and is drawn away from Glasgow.

    "Yawn"

    This story was about the most boring story I ever encountered. Lelsley Mackie's narration was done so well, I just kept expecting the story to somehow come alive- somewhere. But it never did. The main characters were boring and the story line was lifeless.
