DARK DOVE by A.C. Stewart


Email this review


Hard days from heather time to Hogmanay for the MacNeils, as brother Roddy is driven away from his flock of homing pigeons by his dour, dream-haunted father, the Reverend MacNeil. Meanwhile, daughter Margaret is left at home to earn the family's living working as a librarian for the out of kirk (and therefore suspect) Callum MacKinnon. . . and to practice Christian charity on her father, whose nightmares have a disturbing tendency to come true. A solid core of an idea, but the telling is awkward, the Scots humor inbred, and the romance so stiff you could crack your upper lip on it.
