IN THE LAND OF BONNIE ROMANCE AND WEE SUNSHINE As I look back upon it, the life here has been all a ballad from first to last. Like the elfin Tam Lin, 'The queen o' fairies she caught me In this green hill to dwell, ' and these hasty nuptials are a fittingly romantic ending to the summer's poetry. From the pen and heart of the author of Rebecca of Sunnybook Farm comes this delightful story of a young American girl, Penelope Hamilton, traveling through the storied land of Scotland, with her "aggressively American" friend Francesca and the more worldly Salemina. Scones! Haggis! Romance! Poetry! Tea! Edinburgh society and small town Scottish life! And finally, a wedding! But now, if this is August it must be Edinburgh! Board the skirl of bagpipes to a magical land of yesteryear! This is the sequel to Penelope's English Experiences. Penelope ventures on to Penelope's Irish Experiences and then to Europe in Penelope's Postscripts.
