For Keiko Nishisato, leaving Tokyo is a rare adventure. But it's living in Painchton, Scotland, that shows her how far she is from home. Keiko has never met friendlier people. Only the Pooles, the butchers below her second-floor apartment, keep their distance. Murray Poole attracts her right away. Mrs. Poole puzzles her. And then there's Malcolm, massive and brooding, who hints at something dark behind the bustle and banter of this strange little town.
