COME BACK, GEORDIE by David Walker

Geordie of the bestselling book and the movie is still larger than life, married to his Jeannie and working as game keeper for the Laird in his technicolor Scotland. The ex-Olympic champion would be a completely contented man if it weren't for his son, Charlie. Charlie's a good boy, but he doesn't share sobersided Geordie's Presbyterian virtues and his restlessness takes him far from home before his young manhood is over. Settling Charlie down requires that a match be plotted with a girl from home whom Charlie can't stand almost as much as she can't stand him. There's another trip to the Olympic Games before it's over and it's all wonderfully warm, sentimental and funny.
