Tales of Scotland

Margaret Oliphant was born in Scotland, and had a deep love for her country all her life. She was only age 10 when her family left for Liverpool; and later as a young widow she lived one more year in Scotland, from October 1860 - October 1861. Thereafter she lived in England but returned to Scotland often, including an extended stay each summer or autumn.
