Blàs, Roots in the Soil
Where whimsical is a way of life
"A charming Highland tale full of community, warmth and some wicked comedy"
"REALLY enjoyed reading this. Loved the sense of friendship, community, and belonging.!"
"Looking forward to Blàs three!"
"The charming Highland village of Blàs and its colourful residents are presented to us in a series of escapades involving all-knowing village women, gossip, cake, and ceilidhs. When a magical local woodland is threatened, the villagers join forces to protect it, as they have protected their local school, housing, and all the vital components of a very special way of life. In this novel, CC Hutton gives us a remarkable, and wonderfully comic, insight into the best of the Scottish Highlands."
Jane MacKenzie author of the Catalonia trilogy and Tapestry of War

About the Author
C C Hutton spent many years as a Gaelic Development Officer working around the spectacular North Highlands of Scotland. Her experiences inspired her to write Blàs of the Highlands. Blàs, Roots in the Soil followed. The third as yet untitled Blàs story will be out in 2022. She also writes Gaelic Children’s books under the name Ceitidh Hutton. Grumpa agus an Latha Fuaimneach, won best young children’s book of the year 2019 at the Royal National Mod. She was short-listed in the 2020 Gaelic Literacy Awards for an unpublished story. She is registered with the Scottish Book Trust Live Literacy Programme and is the secretary of the Society of Authors, Scotland as well as a member of ALLI.
She is both dyslexic and has dyspraxia, so be aware if blethering about books and drinking tea, the cups may go flying. When not writing she can be found walking dogs, taking part in book events, workshops, and school visits. She still promotes Gaelic when she can.
