Synopsis

Set in the County of West Lothian in Scotland, against the background of a 15th Century mansion called Strathalmond,
Book 1 (1430-1460) tells of the Ingrams who built it and the Douglases who almost caused its destruction.
Book 2 (1912-1972) is about Strathalmond Oil Company in the town of Myrestane, once the leading shale oil producer in the world, the Ingrams who ran it and the Douglases and others who worked for it, from the height of its glory to its sad demise.
It is the saga of two families in different eras; a story of love and war, bigotry and envy, tragedy and hope in their changing worlds.
