This work depicts the nine year quest of an American couple (an agricultural advisor and a writer/webmaster) living on a farm in Michigan, USA, to own and live in a remote Scottish lighthouse keepers home. In the form of e-mails, the book gives an intimate view of the gleefully-reported successes, and the less happily reported tragedies along the way, and describes the joys and difficulties of running and living in such a home in a remote, but beautiful, part of the Shetlands.
