    One thought on “The Road Dance”

    1. This book was also a book I couldn't put down, I read it in a day. At points the tears were pouring down my face it was so emotional, the writer is a Scottish Newsreader - he should change jobs - his writing skills are wonderful.

    2. So disappointed that I have finished this amazing bookok me no time at all to read, just had to keep readingThe relationship between Kirsty and Murdo is so special.ry sad in parts so tissues needed
