She is best known for her series of comic novels based on her time living on a croft in the Scottish Hebrides. Beckwith was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916, where her father ran a grocery shop. The shop provided the background for her memoir About My Father’s Business, a child’s eye view of a 1920s family. She moved to the Isle of Skye with her husband in 1942, and began writing fiction after moving to the Isle of Man with her family twenty years later.

Lillian Beckwith (Lillian Comber) was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916

Lillian Beckwith (Lillian Comber) was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916. She went to live in the Hebrides before the Second World War and stayed there for nearly twenty years, living first on Elgol, Isle of Skye, and later on the nearby and smaller Isle of Soay. Her hilarious initiation into crofting life is captured in the heart warming book 'The Hills is Lonely'. She acquired her own cottage, and living and working on her own croft gave rise to a series of magical Hebridean books such as 'The Sea For Breakfast'

This was the first book I read by Lillian Beckwith but far, far from the last. A dozen books later, and many re-reads, I am a commited life-time fan. Her ability to relate a story is genius and no matter what the topic or situation it bursts with life and humor. You'll love all the characters and marvel at the sheer durability of the Croft people. Give as a gift to anybody in the dull-drums and read for lift of your own spirits. It' better than any pill out there!

Wonderful book to pick up and be absorbed in the day to day adventures of the Folks Lillian Beckwith created.

Just one more in my collection of Beckwiths. I first encountered these books as a kid (more years ago than I care to remember). Like all her semifictional books on her time in the Hebrides, it combines a lot of funny with a little sad. A good mix.
Marige
These books are very entertaining and lighthearted. I have read the whole set and loved every one of them.

The book is written with a lot of humour.
She describes the siuations and habits of the people in the little village Bruach on one of the islands of the Hebrides where she went for rest on advice from her doctor. She liked it so well, that she bought her own croft and kept a cow and chickens. She even cultivated a piece of land .
