Imagine a time and place when toy dolls were hand-carved out of wood, when bairns walked barefoot to school, and sums were done on slate-boards. A time when an apple or an orange was a very rare treat and snacking between meals involved chewing raw turnip.

Enter the childhood world of Phebe Marwick, who grew up in the Wasbister district of Rousay in the inter-war years.

Take a step back in past with her, as she relates many inspirational stories from a long bygone ear. Much more than an event-filled childhood memoir, this engaging title offer uncommon insight into the vibrant social history of one of Orkney's northern isles.

Lavishly adorned with illustrations, maps, scenic colour photos and b&w portraits, 'Orkney Isle Endearing' is a book to be enjoyed and treasured.

Collected, arranged and edited by her son, Tom, who lives and works in Orkney.

Formerly 'Rousay Remembered'.
