Sàr-Sgeòil: As the Women Lay Dreaming

Cathy MacDonald visits the Isle of Lewis to explore the locations and history that inspired author Donald S Murray in the writing of his novel, “As the Women Lay Dreaming”.  The book is one of the first works of fiction to explore the Iolaire tragedy of 1st January 1919 – a disaster at sea in which over 200 men, the majority of whom were islanders returning home from the war, were lost.
