The Glasgow of the 1930s is brought to vivid, vibrant life in this unforgettable story of an indomitable family of women.
Lizzie Conway has clawed her way out of the Gorbals slums despite a crippling burden of debt left by her husband. She would do anything to protect Polly, Babs and Rosie from the violence of Glasgow's mean streets.
But now the girls are grown: Polly has a secure post with the borough council, Babs is a clerk and even Rosie, whose life is marred by deafness, is set to find work that suits her talents.
Lizzie's strength and determination cannot protect her girls from falling in love with men as tough and feckless as their father. Yet Lizzie is a fighter to the bitter end - and so, as she learns, are her daughters.
