Publisher's Summary

Evocative listening conveying scenes from Scottish life, from the world-famous author of Peter Pan.

Window in Thrums - the story of the "untrue son" - is about the fictional village of Thrums. The story and setting are widely acknowledged to be modelled on Barrie's home town of Kirriemuir. It was one of his earlier works which, along with Auld Licht Idylls, also published in 1889. The novel contains many memorable sketches and illuminations of Scottish life at the time, and it paved the way for the rest of Barrie's great career.

Excellent narration

An evocative account of life in a Scottish village, a really enjoyable book and such a surprise, not what I expected from Barrie.
