Connections follows the lives of members of one family of clan Robertson (formerly clan Donnachaidh), a clan identified by some as the oldest in Scotland reaching back to the 11th. century. Starting with the earliest recorded ancestor in Newburn, Fife in 1696 the family is traced through Cupar, Fife to Edinburgh, then south to London and eventually to the United States. Descriptions are enhanced by providing the reader with a backdrop of both the historical and social fabric of the times. Connections also describes the links between different family members. For example, a treasure trove of information was found about a famous Scottish bridge builder, a controversial leader of the Presbyterian Church in Scotland, and the exploits of an exceptional and courageous athlete whose backgrounds were all interwoven.

Loarn Robertson was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He was educated at The Glasgow Academy, Loughborough Colleges in England, and later at The University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. He has held professional positions as a college professor, clinician and academic book editor. His deep interest in history has resulted in the development of several short stories, two book titles (William Frederick Despard of Lacca Manor and Connections). He is about to publish "A Slight History of Scotland' - a brief and entertaining work on Scottish history from early peoples to the new millennium. In his youth, Robertson was selected for the Scottish Schools rugby and athletics teams in the mid-1960s, and later as an adult after moving to the United States, he was a medalist in 1999, 2003 and 2005 in track and field throwing events sponsored by the National Senior Olympic Games organization.
