ABOUT THIS BOOK
PUBLICATION DATE: January 1, 2002
By (author) Emma Blair
The Glasgow Nellie Thompson had been born to was a city bled colourless by poverty and despair, and divided against itself by religion and class. A city where appearances meant more than the truth that might lie in a person’s heart …Nellie knew what it was like to be hungry and hopeless; to live a bitter lie with a man she hated. But still she held on to her dreams. Somehow she would leave those grey and violent streets behind. Somehow she would make her own life and her own world – even if she were forever denied the comfort of love.
Emma Blair was born in Glasgow and now lives in Devon. She is the author of many bestselling novels including SCARLET RIBBONS and FLOWER OF SCOTLAND, both of which were shortlisted for the Romantic Novelist of the Year.
