Title:Children of Tempest
Munro, Neil   
(1 of 3 for author by title)
Gilian the Dreamer
Published:   1903
Publisher:William Blackwood and Sons
Tags:fiction, Gaelic, romance, Scotland

A romantic and melodramatic love story set in the Outer Hebrides in the late eighteenth century and involving the fate of the famous Loch Arkaig treasure that disappeared in the aftermath of the 1745 Jacobite Rising.

Neil Munro's skilful characterisation and artful storytelling create a deeply sensitive parable or fable on the destructiveness of human greed and the vengefulness of the sea.

The story is steeped in Gaelic mythology and scattered with authentic landscape and coastline details of Barra, Uist and Mingulay, scene of the novel's dreadful climax.--houseoflochar.com. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Munro, Neil

Author Image

Neil Munro (1863—1930) was a Gaelic-speaking native of Argyllshire who spent most of his working life as a journalist and writer in Glasgow. He is universally known for his humorous Para Handy Tales which first appeared as newspaper sketches and which forever associate him with the West Highlands. His more important literary work includes a series of historical novels and some outstanding short stories—indeed, it has been suggested that Munro is one of Scotland's best short story writers.
