Vivacious, young Hester Christie tries to run her home like clockwork, as would befit the wife of British Army officer, Tim Christie. However hard Mrs Tim strives for seamless living, she is always trying to remember groceries, rule lively children and side-step village gossip. Left alone for months at a time whilst her husband is with his regiment, Mrs Tim resolves to keep a diary of family life.

When a move to a new regiment in Scotland uproots the Christie family, Hester is hurled into a whole new drama. Against the wild landscape of surging rivers, rocks and rolling mists, who should stride into Mrs Tim's life one day but the dashing Major Morley. Hester will soon find that life holds unexpected crossroads...

“The writer's unflagging humour, her shrewd, worldly wisdom, and her extremely realistic pictures of garrison life make it all good reading.” ―Times Literary Supplement (UK)
