THE passport that says Diana O’Neill is a citizen of the United States of America tells you about a third of the whole truth.
What it doesn’t reveal is that her heart is the big, proud one of a Texan and the blood in her veins is as Scottish as the waters of the Clyde, the banks of which her grandfather left over 100 years ago to find a new life in America.
After the work of over a decade, recruiting the help of scores of friends, old and new, on both sides of the Atlantic, Diana has produced her family’s story in book form, entitled Hands Across The Sea.
There’s a saying that Texans just don’t know how to do anything small – and, boy, does this book prove it!
To find out more about the book – and for your chance to win a copy – don’t miss this week’s Carluke and Lanark Gazette which is in the shops now.
