What can take the fire out of a fever, the ache out of loving and the meanness out of a miser? The answer according to Tearlaich is whisky - the ‘water of life’. And when he suggests to Lillian that the islanders should have their own blend - a ‘Bruach Blend’ - Lillian can see his logic.

The animal scenes are delightful, and character descriptions and development are lovely, but the plot takes a while to materialize.
