Summary (From the publisher):

A Scots Quair is the story of Chris Guthrie from before the First World War to the Great Depression. At first Chris plans to be a teacher, but she is also attracted to the harshness of the Scottish landscape, to the vital coarseness of the farm people. Amid the poverty and drudgery, the narrowness and meanness, she perceives a wild irresistable beauty. Chris's mother, worn out by arduous work and childbearing, commits suicide, and Chris muses "The Chris of the books and the dreams died with it, or you folded them up in their paper of tissue and laid them away by the dark, quiet corpse that was your childhood."

A Scots Quair is the story of men and women who live on the land; of men who march away to war; of a strong woman who raises a hard son; of "Time" and the "Land" echoing in a woman's soul.
