Northern Scotland

The sign read Wee Mad Road. How could you not travel down a road with a sign like that? The road less travelled changed the lives of Jack and Barbara Maloney. They found a B&B to stay on in Coigach.
Several years later the daughters are out of the house and they take the plunge. They sell their house in Minnesota and chuck it all. They return to Coigach for two more years. This is the story of their life in a community in transition between old ways and new.

The telling of the story alternates between Jack and excerpts from Barbara's diaries. Barbara is an artist and her work is through out.

I found myself putting the book down. I didn't want to finish it because then it would be over. Wander down the Wee Mad Road with them. It is worth the trip. You can have a taste at their site
