About this title:

Synopsis: Being well camouflaged and unobtrusive, Nicholas keenly observed the comings and goings of three generations of his family and their animals in a remote area of the Isle of Mull. In the early 1950s life was basic, without mains water or electricity, as each day followed the next. But sometimes the routine was disrupted. Despite its isolation, the island was affected by Foot and Mouth disease while conflict raging in a foreign land caused separation in the family. Nothing escaped Nicholas' attention. As the family cat, his contact with humans and animals alike gave him a unique opportunity to record the events that concerned them all. This delightful account, written during a year in the life of the family, came to light after more than fifty years of neglect in a drawer. It will appeal to all ages, and to lovers of the simple life, of big open spaces, of country living, of farm animals - and of cats in particular.

About the Author: In 1951, Annabel Carothers Sold Her Family House In London And Joined Her Parents In Mull In Order For Her Daughter To Follow In Her Footsteps And Attend Cheltenham Ladies' College. With Carla, A Spaniel, And Nicholas, A Cat, She Set Up A Smallholding In The Days When Subsistence Farming Was Almost A Necessity. During This Period She Wrote The Novels It Happened To Rain, A Breeze In The Barley And Four Ducks On A Pond. She Submitted A Breeze In The Barley To William Heinemann And Set To Work On A Sequel, The Silver Link. Both Books Were Accepted For Publication And She Was Asked To Complete A Trilogy With Song Without End. The Result Was Kilcaraig, Which Was Published On 26 April 1982 - The Day, Tragically, She Died. In 2008, Her Daughter, Fionna Eden-Bushell, Discovered Four Ducks On A Pond In A Desk Drawer And Decided To Pursue Her Mother's Wish For It To Be Published.
