Killed and his Scottie Silla Big Willie s body is found about halfway into the story and the pace picks Jesus Calling up considerably There are two plots that converge along with another subplot to keeps turning those pagesMs Stewart brings humor to this story with Peggy still explaining current time expressions and things to Dirk as he struggles with the ways of modern times She does trust "Him To Go Off By " to go off by and they are learning to work together She keeps his speech and its patterns true to his Scottish 14th century time This was a bit frustrating for me in the first book but now it is natural for me to read I can even hear the lilt in his voice The author also tells a bit of the story from Scottie Silla s point of view Touched my heart as a pet mourned the lost
