Weir of Hermiston
Although considered by many to be Robert Louis Stevenson's greatest work of literature, Weir of Hermiston was left unfinished by its author's untimely death in 1894. Archie Weir is estranged from his father, a harsh criminal court judge with no time for Archie's Romantic sensibilities. Sent to live as laird of a family property in Hermiston, Archie soon falls in love with a local girl named Kirstie.
