It’s December 1968. Having cheated Sandy Hoynes out of a rowing race and navigation certificate when
they were young, Dreich MacCallum makes an unexpected return to Kinloch. With the Girl Maggie up on the slip
awaiting urgent repairs, Hoynes takes to his bed, the memory of it all too much. When first mate Hamish persuades his
skipper to get up and put the fishing boat back into the water, there are unexpected consequences that put Hoynes’
liberty and reputation at risk.
Has Dreich won the day again?
But the spirits of the past have yet to have their say. Upon whom will the winter sun set?
