The Glasgow Belle
Margaret Thomson Davis

5" x 7 3/4" • 256 pages
ISBN 9781873631966 • paperback • $11.95

As the great age of canal building comes to Glasgow, powerful men are willing to risk everything on this new venture, gambling vast fortunes on its success. Meanwhile, in the city slums, the desperate, age-old struggle for survival continues unchanged.

On the banks of the canal, a wild and beautiful young girl is rescued from a life of poverty and abuse thanks to the kindness of the old Earl of Kirklee. Isla Anderson had always dreamed of becoming a Lady, and when she goes to live at Kirklee Castle as one of the family, it seems as if all of her dreams have come true.

But not everyone at Kirklee is willing to forget Isla’s humble origins, and she soon clashes with the Earl’s relatives, especially Lady Dorothy—a haughty and spiteful woman who makes no secret of her fervent desire to send Isla straight back to the slums from which she came.

Evoking all the wealth and squalor of 18th century Glasgow, The Glasgow Belle is a powerful tale of rivalry and ambition, bitter hatred and enduring love.

Margaret Thomson Davis left school at sixteen, working as a children’s nurse and in various other jobs before achieving her ambition of becoming a writer. She has published over twenty of novels and 200 short stories. Her first novel, The Breadmakers, is still a bestseller more than 25 years after it was published. She lives in Glasgow and is in great demand as an entertaining and informative speaker.
