Though the union is a happy one, and Chris's young son Ewan is content in his new family, there are frustrations: the parish watches with hawk-like eyes as Chris walks the impossibly fine line between appearing 'common-like' and 'putting on airs'. When a kirk post falls vacant in the village of Segget, husband and wife seize the opportunity to move. But in the wake of the war, economic and social upheaval are sweeping the nation - even in this far-flung corner of Scotland, their effects will be felt
The speak of the Mearns : with selected short stories and essays by Lewis Grassic Gibbon( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essential collection from Lewis Grassic Gibbon comprises short stories, essays and a novel, The Speak of the Mearns, which was unfinished at the time of the author's death in 1935. Grassic Gibbon's fame rests mainly on the trilogy, A Scots Quair, and the short stories, some well known, exhibit the same elements - powerful, dramatic writing and a distinctive local flavour - found in the novels. The Speak of the Mearns is a sharply observed unsentimental portrait of a rural coastal community seen through the eyes of a young boy growing up there. The essays put on record the author's views on politics and religion
