(From the publisher):
Glasglow, Kansas, is not quite the motherland for Scotsman Rob MacPherson. But his efforts to make it so leave an indelible impression on his son, Ewan - especially the elder MacPherson's failed attempt to make a single-malt Scotch...which leads to a whisky-still explosion...which leads to Ewan's suffering a terrible injury...which lieads to his falling in love - at fourteen years of age - with Shirley Porter.
There's no turning back for Ewan. From that moment on, his heart has set its course. Through adolescence and into adulthood, through becoming a high school teacher, bagpipe instructor, loyal son, and keeper of all Scottish traditions, Ewan has found his one true passion - much like his father's obsession with single malt Scotch. A passion that - through trial and error - will teach him that love is an acquired taste...
