Kate is in the not necessarily sad limbo of widowhood when Big Murdo and Wee Murdo arrive in her kitchen with alarming news. Hasn't she heard about her daughter Mhairi's marriage? Confronting Mhairi on her return from college, Kate finds that she is indeed married, and what's more, has a baby on the way. But the husband isn't the father, and the father is nowhere to be found... Circling at the very edge of this picture is Jamie, a homeless young man fleeing ghosts of his own. When Mhairi is driven to a terrible act, his path briefly crosses the women's, with surprising consequences. Offering a wry contemporary perspective on Highland life, Upstairs in the Tent is a warm, forgiving novel about people's need to find their home in the world.

These stories observe how people live through moments of realisation; how they negotiate the avenues of loss, with cowardice and courage and a fair amount of bewilderment. While fishing on a sunny loch, a woman is suddenly convinced and terrified that her lover is about to leave her. Parents in San Francisco learn that their son has been in a car accident, and may be dying. A girl loses her virginity the same day as the funeral of her much despised mother, and later understands which is the greater loss. Humour threads through these dark moments and days. Even death – especially death – is not exempt. And love is perfectly heaving with embarrassing poignancy. These are warm stories about real people. Loss changes them, but change makes them feel alive.

There's something very strange going on in Fairfax. Joe Johnson is on the hunt for dying people while his wife stares into space and flies land on her nose; the Snelling kids fester in a hippie backwater and pretend that they haven't just killed their grandfather; and Morag, multi-bigamist from the Scottish Highlands, makes some rash decisions when diagnosed with terminal cancer by Manuel - who may or may not be a doctor. Meanwhile, the ghost of Consuela threads her way through all the stories, oblivious to the ever-watching Connie - who sees everything from the attic of the Gentle Valleys Hospice. Cynthia Rogerson's second novel is a funny and life-affirming tale about the courage to love in the face of death.
