Love Strong as Death
The Autobiography of Fr Ronald Walls
These pages offer a valuable insight into many “nooks and crannies” of Scottish life during the 20th century. From the middle-class respectability of Edinburgh's suburbs to the idyll of Highland rural life in Logie Easter. From the friendly banter of the Glasgow tram to the evocative calm of Nunraw Abbey. Fr Ronnie's writing skill is such that the reader will soon feel quite at home in these and many other locations, and will follow with increasing interest the boy becoming a man, finding happiness in an exemplary marriage to Helen, his soul-mate, and settling down to parish ministry.
Born in Edinburgh in 1920 he began adult life as a minister in the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. In 1948, with his wife and three sons, he was received into the Catholic Church. In a road accident in 1974 he was badly injured and his wife Helen was killed. In 1977 he was ordained priest by Mario Conti, Bishop of Aberdeen.
