‘Oh, she hated and loved in a breath!’

Faced with the choice between her harsh farming life and the seductive world of books and learning, the spirited Chris Guthrie decides to remain in rural Scotland. But as the devastation of the First World War leaves Chris and her community in tatters, she must draw strength from what she loves – and endure, like the land she loves so intensely.

Powerful and moving, Sunset Song is an inspirational celebration of the human spirit.

Lewis Grassic Gibbon (James Leslie Mitchell) was one of the finest writers of the twentieth century. Born in Aberdeenshire in 1901, he died at the age of thirty-four. He was a prolific writer of novels, short stories, essays and science fiction, and his writing reflected his wide interest in religion, archaeology, history, politics and science. The Mearns trilogy, A Scots Quair, is his most renowned work, and has become a landmark in Scottish literature.
