Blood on the Thistle
By

Rating
Blood on the Thistle is the tale of how a once proud Scottish family was devastated by war, and how the effects continued to ripple through time and generations. Until, a century later, the threads of this remarkable family are finally drawn together again, in a book that is at once a superb documentary account and a moving tribute to a generation.

About the Author

Stuart Pearson, after many varied careers over decades in law enforcement, education, government, and business, has finally found his calling in writing. His first book Bittersweet: The Memoir of a Chinese Indonesian Family in the Twentieth Century was published to much critical acclaim, and was nominated for the New South Wales Premier's Prize for Literature in 2010. Bob Mitchell trained as a psychiatric nurse in the late 1960s, and is now retired from his position as Senior Lecturer (Mental Health) at Napier University, Edinburgh.
