In a town where half the men die down the coalpit, Margaret MacNeil is quite happy being single. Until she meets Neil Currie, a charming and sincere bagpipe-playing, Gaelic-speaking dishwasher. But no matter what you do, you can't avoid the spectre of the pit forever. Written by
She found a way to preserve her memories forever.
Did You Know?
You took your grandfather's lungs?
Then you took your husband's lungs? Why?
Because I wanted to show what a good set of lungs looked like.
