“Autumn at Whitewalls” by Christine Richard

This book is the second in the “Whitewalls” series, by Christine Richard. “Whitewalls” is a Scottish family saga set in the present day.  The family home on the banks of the River Tweed in southern Scotland is the heart of the family and the haven to which the four generations return on a regular basis.   Then, into this “Scottish Eden” real life intrudes and Rosie, the matriarch of the family finds her ordered and lovely world turned upside down.  This book is full of interesting locations, characters, animals, painting, gardens, food and much more including intrigue, triumphs and defeats.


About the Author:

Christine has been writing stories since she was a small child.  She has set the book in the present day with dramas both large and small and hopefully has ended with the reader wanting more. Christine lives and works in Edinburgh where she is also involved in public life serving on the Boards of the International Festival, Friends of the Royal Scottish Academy and Edinburgh’s Telford College.

Handfast – poems of family


In Handfast, Scottish poets Ruth Aylett and Beth McDonough explore the dynamics of dementia and autism within the context of family life. These poems reflect, find parallels and ask what really happens when the generation before or after is affected.

How is the fabric and feasting of day-to-day life changed by these conditions, and what were the early signs, hopes and disappointments? These poems do not shirk from harsh realities, but find shared spaces and connections, and even comfort and the surprise of humour.

In Handfast, we learn about the heart, ‘this million-shattered glass’, the power of rain, and that, sometimes, riddles remain unsolved.

Ruth and Beth’s jointly written poem, ‘A Litany across Generations’, now in Handfast, was placed second in Cheltenham Poetry Festival’s Compound Poem competition 2015.

Handfast can be bought from Mother’s Milk
