Evie Granger has left behind her beloved Scottish countryside to live with her husband Davie and her patents in the Close. In the desperately hard conditions, she must fight to bring up her children and keep her family together as the poverty of the twenties Glasgow threatens to destroy already fragile family relationships.
Evie's heart is big enough for everyone, it seems. All her friends and relations run to her when tragedy and heartbreak enter their lives. Yet Evie is beginning to feel trapped and is constantly haunted by memories of her childhood in the country. But most of all she can never forget Gillan…
