The Moss of Cree
A Scottish Childhood

by Mary Cecil Gladstone

The Highland Sea-tm - #2 in the series

An Adventure in Growing Up

The charming story of Mary's journey from wee'un to sophisticate, told in her own evolving voice. Raised on a dairy farm, Mary picks the natural path when possible, through spiky settings and happier dangers. The narrative takes us with her, into finding and freeing herself for a new and open future. As a descendant of an accomplished historic family, she learns quickly the intrigue of wider opportunity.

"Scottish Book of the Week"   The Courier
"The Moss is lovely and interesting. Thank you for sharing such vivid memories!"   Dr Ian Wotherspoon
"The child’s eye view of life is what Mary has captured so beautifully." Carol Hogarth, D&G Life
