For Anna, a carefree and gentle child living in a remote community in the Hebrides, a chance meeting with the mysterious and romantic Jimmy Pearl is to take on a dream-like quality as she grows to womanhood and encounters a hard and often cruel adult world.
When Anna’s parents die, and her brother, with his new wife, sells the family croft, Anna is forced into a loveless marriage to the cold and heartless Black Fergus. But life has surprises in store for them, including the reappearance of Jimmy Pearl.
