Dear Read­ers . . .

The People's Friend Special - - CONTENTS -

Our latest Spe­cial is full of good read­ing! This is­sue we have a fan­tas­tic page-turner as our mini-mag – Ali­son Carter’s grip­ping mur­der mys­tery, “In Cold Blood”, which will keep you guess­ing till the very end.

We also have 14 brand-new short sto­ries by favourite au­thors in­clud­ing Jean Cul­lop, Wendy Clarke and Suzanne Ross Jones. Don’t miss Anne Pack’s poignant “Iso­bel’s Is­land”, set in the He­brides, or “Press­ing Mat­ters” by Ly­dia Jones, a light-hearted story of good deeds and best in­ten­tions.

We also have some in­spir­ing fea­tures to get you out and about over the next few weeks. Morag Flem­ing heads north to the Shet­land Isles and finds lots to see and do on the won­der­fully named Yell, Wil­lie Shand re­counts his visit to the World Sheep­dog Tri­als, and Su­san McMullen dis­cov­ers the sur­pris­ing side of Dundee, home town of the “Friend”.

Liv­ing in ru­ral ar­eas is not with­out its chal­lenges, which is where an or­gan­i­sa­tion called Dis­tance Be­frien­ders comes in – find out more on page 60. We also have puzzles to test your wits, a sim­ple sum­mer top to knit and easy Thai-style recipes to try at home.
