Best-selling romance novel set on the Isle of Man, notable for its use of the Manx dialect and colloquialisms, garnering the praise from the Manx poet T.E. Brown "There is not a Manx proverb, a Manx anecdote, a Manx jest, a Manx situation which will not be found in 'The Manxman.' All Manx men are in it, all Manx women. It sweeps like a trawl-net the whole bottom of the Manx waters."
