Local author Hugh Grant delivers his first novel based mainly on his home city of Inverness. It draws heavily on his own experiences of crofting and the managing of hotels in the Highlands. Among the hotels he has managed are the old Caledonian Hotel, the Drumossie Hotel, The Douglas and Palace Hotels in Inverness along with the Drumnadrochit Hotel in Glenurquhart and the Caledonian Hotel in Ullapool. This heart-warming and nostalgic novel set in the post war era of the forties and fifties is a well-crafted story by a natural raconteur. It tells of a remarkable journey by a disadvantaged young man Denzil Morrison who starts off as a "boots" and rises to become the youngest Maitre d' of the prestigious Royal Hotel in Inverdeen.
