Buchbeschreibung zu „The Blue Cabin“

Following the collapse of his business, Michael Faulkner and his wife moved from Scotland to a cabin on Islandmore, an uninhabited island on Strangford Lough.

With no mains electricity, an erratic water supply and access to the mainland only possible by boat, life on the island is one part catastrophe – gale, storm and tempest, broken generators, disappearing dinghies – to three parts idyll – long walks on the short with their Westie and Cairn terrier, the arrival of the terns, year-round picnics, sunsets from Eagle Hill.

The result is a book reminiscent of the writing of Peter Mayle (A Year in Provence); an honest, often funny, and moving account of one couple and two dogs living the kind of life that so many of us yearn for.

Über Michael Faulkner

Michael Faulkner grew up in Northern Ireland but has spent most of his adult life in Scotland, initially working as a solicitor and subsequently setting up a furniture-making company. Despite initial success, the business went under in 2001 and Mike and his wife, professional artist Lynn McGregor, moved to the cabin on Islandmore, his family's summer home. They have lived on the island ever since.

Mike has written three books: The Blue Cabin, Still on the Sound and Gentle Giant: An Illustrated History of John Thompson & Sons. To find out more about Mike, visit www.thebluecabin.com.
