We Go Back A Long Way by John McEwen: What do you do when your worst enemy is in trouble and no one can help but you?
Unseen-on-Tweed by Clare Watson: At the same time, every day, they sit on the wall by the river. What are they waiting for and who are they, anyway?
Flat Tail by Campbell Hutcheson: A foreigner’s arrival upsets a tranquil Borders community.
First Date by Anita John: Will love blossom when two people meet on a first date in a brand-new restaurant on the Tweed?
Black Gold by Robert Sproul-Cran: An ancient fish returns to the Tweed – and it’s going to make quite a splash!
Our Place by Emily Larner: Love can strike at any time and often when we least expect it. Rose and Thistle stumble into a deep love affair by the Tweed and, like the river, it is turbulent and majestic.
