Auld Acquaintance by Ruth Hay is the story of a woman in her 60s who has lost her confidence through life events, including a divorce. Anna has a part-time job in a library, and a group of good friends, but she is sinking into a depression.
Unexpectedly, she receives a legal letter informing her that she has inherited a piece of property in Scotland. Her first instinct is to ignore this letter as she has no knowledge of the person named as the owner.
Anna’s friends persuade her to travel to Scotland and stay until she can decide how to dispose of the farm house near Oban. So begins an adventure which opens up prospects for Anna and introduces her to a new environment and new people who help her.
Will Anna adjust to living in a farm house with the minimum of amenities? Will she solve the family mystery of the unknown relative who has bestowed this legacy on her? Will she leave Canada for Scotland or return to her homeland and her safe life there?
This novel is the first in an intended series. It is specifically designed to appeal to a demographic of women who enjoy reading, who require the printed page in their hands and who want a good story, in an interesting setting, with a positive outcome.
Anna’s group of friends and the family mysteries she discovers in the first book, are component parts of the series.
