AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A famous writer travels to the remote, windswept islands of Scotland's Outer Hebrides looking for peace of mind and a chance to dispel his inner demons.

'On the way, a car accident throws him together with the raven-haired doctor Kathleen McNeil. He also falls in with the Red Wolf, a man who lives by the old codes—some of them violent. As a love triangle develops, the refined, civilised writer finds himself pitted against the rough-hewn man of nature.

'Summer of the Red Wolf is an epic story for a modern age; a fast-paced narrative in a rugged landscape, driven by the timeless themes of love and jealousy.'
