'When I had first come to the Hebrides Morag, my landlady, had advised me always to "take a rope -- in case," ...Over and over I had proved its usefulness. I might need it to catch a calf or a sheep; to carry a bundle of hay to the cow or a can of paraffin from the grocer; to tie a bundle of driftwood I had collected, or a sack of peat; to secure a boat; make a temporary repair to a sagging fence or a halter for a horse ...Excepting when they were going on holiday or to church, the Bruach crofters were rarely without a length of rope, either coiled around an arm or protruding from a pocket

'The Lord puts the salmon in the river like he puts the berries on the trees. They're there for all of us, not just for the laird.'

And it wasn't just fishermen like Erchy and Hector who were experts even a visiting vicar had been tempted by the fat salmon that filled the island's streams and pools. Like Lillian Beckwith's other books about life in the Hebrides, Lightly Poached is packed with the enchanting and hilarious adventures of her island friends. 'A beautiful book this, smelling of earth and sea, carrying the atmosphere of the crofts, and forcing you to laugh aloud' Oxford Mail 'Delightfully tangy and stylish' Sunday Express

Before the Second World War, Lillian Beckwith's father ran a small grocer's shop in a Cheshire town. It was typical of so many corner shops - the shops that are now more and more becoming just a memory, overwhelmed by the march of the supermarket. The corner shop where customers were known, often friends, not just faces at a checkout point, where shopping was gossipy, unhurried. A shop full of remembered smells of childhood: soft soap, aniseed balls, bacon and tea. A shop that is brought to life by the acute, affectionate memories of the little girl who grew up in it
