This is the story of where people go in times of extreme stress, danger, guilt and shame to deal with the magnitude of the distasteful situations they experience. The story strives to understand human nature, the things we do, often inexplicably foolish and the all-encompassing question of why are we here? and what is it all about? It is about the triumph of the human soul against great adversity and forces beyond our control and suggests why God so readily forgives us all our sins, both great and small. The story shows how destiny repeatedly throws a spanner in the works of our lives and constantly tests us.
"Oh-h-h-h, Cam-er-on!" Agony, reproach, entreaty, vibrated in the clear young voice that rang out over the Inverleith grounds. The Scottish line was sagging!-that line invincible in two years of International conflict, the line upon which Ireland and England had broken their pride. Sagging! And because Cameron was weakening! Cameron, the brilliant half-back, the fierce-fighting, erratic young Highlander, disciplined, steadied by the great Dunn into an instrument of Scotland's glory! Cameron going back! A hush fell on the thronged seats and packed inner-circle, -a breathless, dreadful hush of foreboding. High over the hushed silence that vibrant cry rang; and Cameron heard it. The voice he knew. It was young Rob Dunn's, the captain's young brother, whose soul knew but two passions, one for the captain and one for the half-back of the Scottish International.
