Set in the wild and remote landscape of Eday, part of the Orkney archipelago, this is an unflinchingly honest tale of rural life, from the only doctor on the island.

In stories that range from the humorous to the deeply moving, Doctor Malcolm Alexander describes what it's like adjusting to life without modern inconveniences, to the extreme weather, and what it means to provide the best medical care to the local population (which often includes the wildlife as well) with limited resources.

Malcolm's journey evokes the awe that Orkney inspires and reminds us of the importance of listening to our heart, as well as to the rhythms of the landscape.
