This is the first D.E.Stevenson novel that I have read. I quite enjoyed it and plan to read more. It is the third in a trilogy and think it would help to read the earlier ones. The plot lines are different from the typical romance novel. I liked the remote setting in rural Scotland and the emphasis on married couples. ( )

Book description
Third in the Dering Family trilogy. Actually the second and third books are about the Johnstone family (the only Dering in them changes his name to Dering Johnstone early in the second book) and are much more closely intertwined than the first book is with either. Winter and Rough Weather aka Shoulder the Sky picks up the story of James Dering Johnstone soon after his marriage, and intertwined with his and his new wife's efforts to learn to farm and to survive on a remote croft are several plotlines concerning their neighbours in Drumburly, most of whom we met in Music in the Hills (Dering Family #2).
