Nearly perfect adaptation and performances
I’d recommend this to all my children and grandchildren.
I loved the authentic north eastern Scottish accents and expressions.
I could taste the tea and oatcakes, feel the rain on my body, smell the fields and see the loch in all its moods.
Sunset Song a great Scottish classic
I loved this book when I was at school and the dramatisation of it, brought fond memories back.
