Troon Library, 2pm
This event is part of South Ayrshire Libraries Book Week Scotland celebrations.
Spiritual insight and genealogy research are the heart of Bloodlines – Touch Not the Cat, a novel on cultural inheritance by Thomas McKerley and Ingrid Schippers.
The story of American homicide detective Cathy Stewart from Raleigh, North Carolina leads the reader to Ballindaloch Castle in the Scottish Highlands, the home of the Macpherson family for over 450 years. Although reluctant at first, Cathy gets drawn into a mystery set in motion by her own ancestors.
Victorian period flashbacks reveal the life and times of Alexander Stewart, born in 1875 as son of the Ballindalloch gamekeeper, who emigrates to America, where a dream comes true.
