Dancing at the Rascal Fair (McCaskill Trilogy Series #2) - Ivan Doig, Ian MacKenzie Robert I give up. I have written two reviews for this and both I have trashed. I cannot do the book justice. The lines are wonderful. The writing is not brash, but subtle. The relationships are beautifully portrayed. The book is about friendship and love. Love isn't always returned. How do you live with that? Does love then die? Can you love another? And what happens every time you meet up with that person who does not return your love?

Excellent historical fiction. A time and a place become real - something you live, not just something you read about.
