In this Scottish historian's epic novel spanning the first half of the twentieth century, a mother and daughter survive the turbulence of changing times. In Glasgow at the dawn of the 1900s, nothing is more shaming than having an illegitimate child. Meg and her young daughter Becky live in constant fear of their secret being exposed. But it is not just the shame of being an unmarried mother that troubles Meg. She must raise her beloved daughter through the great disasters and traumas of the new century. In Meg, Jenny Telfer Chaplin has created a memorable character-a woman whose fortitude in the face of tragedy will both inspire and move readers. From the threat of bubonic plague to the Great War, the Great Depression, and the new horrors of World War Two, Meg experiences the extremes of both love and sorrow. "An enthralling story that kept me hooked from the first page to the last." -Robert Foster, bestselling author of The Lunar Code
