From the cover: In this absorbing letter Jane Duncan takes the reader behind the scenes of her beloved Reachfar and the exotic Caribbean settings of St Jago and to meet not only the major characters of her novels and their real-life prototypes, but also herself in the twin persons of Janet Sandison, the narrator in all the Reachfar novels, and Jane Duncan who writes them.

Letter from Reachfar is a memoir which will live on in the mind in the same way that so many of her characters and stories have found a permanent place in the affections and memories of many thousands of readers, Few novelists can have had the same extraordinary power to evoke the Scottish countryside, particularly the Black Isle, north! of Inverness, where the author lives and where she spent her holidays as a child at her grandparents croft.

The skill and spirit which have given a special quality to all her fiction both for adults and for children work triumphantly in this book which is an enchanting tapestry of fact and fiction.

Letter from Reachfar will delight all who read it.
