Set on a farm high in an Orkney dale in the years after World War Two, Siggy tells the story of an eleven-year-old boy struggling to cope with the aftermath of his father's death and his mother's quick re-marriage. We follow him through a year of his life, as he gets into mischief with his friend, Pete, deals with bullying at school, seeks solace from his beloved grandmother and finally comes to terms with his situation and looks forward to his future.
