From the grimy streets of 1920s Glasgow to the peat fires of the Outer Hebrides during the Great Depression, More Full of Weeping is the story of Hugh MacSoirbheas. He begins life as that rarest of things: a happy orphan, learning Gaelic from a caretaker at the orphanage, the woman who named him and whose daughter becomes Hugh’s closest friend. Though desperate to remain where he is, he is intrigued when he learns that he is to be taken in as a foster child on a Gaelic-speaking island off the Scottish coast. Little does he know that on this remote croft he will face enemies, gain allies, fight for his beloved language, and ultimately solve the mystery of his own parentage. At heart, More Full of Weeping is a very human story of powerlessness and prejudgment being overcome by love and perseverance.
