Kirkwood was born on a Yorkshire farm. She went to Agriculture College before marrying a Scottish dairy farmer.From Booklist:
Victoria is the darling of her great-grandmother and the last of her line in a family that has served the lairds of Darlonachie faithfully for centuries. But much has changed in the years following the Great War, and when Victoria is suddenly left alone in the world, Mr. Luke's wife makes her life as cook's assistant miserable. Andrew Pringle, her best friend, is several years older and hopes to make her his wife when she is grown, but he fears competition in the form of young Mark, closer to Victoria's age and sharing her interests. Kirkwood begins a charming new family saga set in southwest Scotland during the years between the world wars with this lushly descriptive, warmly evocative, and unblinkered glimpse at a mostly neglected yet certainly significant time in history.
