The Gourlay Girls
Margaret Thomson Davis

5 x 7 3/4 • 256 pages
ISBN 9781903265093 • paperback • $11.95

In Glasgow at the beginning of the 1930s, the lives of two very different families are about to be changed forever by the repercussions of a tragedy that seems to defy explanation. In their splendid home in the West End, everything seems perfect in the comfortable, privileged lives of bestselling novelist Nicholas Cartwright, his beautiful wife, Virginia, and their two children. Until one dreadful day when their world is touched by tragedy and they find themselves struggling to come to terms with a mystery that will haunt them for years to come.

Meanwhile, in the run-down tenements of Springburn, the Gourlay family is battling to make ends meet. The Depression has hit Glasgow hard, Erchie Gourlay is unemployed, and only the long hours his three daughters spend sewing and dressmaking keeps poverty at bay. The future looks bleak for the Gourlays, until the arrival of a destitute young girl on their doorstep brings them new hope of a better life.

The sequel to the bestselling Clydesiders, Margaret Thomson Davis' The Gourlay Girls is an enthralling tale of two families, skillfully evoking the life and times of the city of Glasgow in the 1930s—from the spectacular Empire Exhibition to the coming of World War II.

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.
