In 'Roses Round the Door' Christine Marion Fraser continues the heartwarming story of her life which began in the Govan district of Glasgow. After the death of Mam and Da, she goes to live on a housing scheme with her sister Kirsty, but – spirited and fun-loving as ever, despite being confined to a wheelchair – it is not long before she is married to the man of her choice and living in the beautiful Highland countryside.
Her passionate love of animals, the joy of marriage and motherhood and – by the end – the start of her successful writing career are recounted with characteristic warmth and humour. Together with delightful observations of country life, and her undaunted courage in coping with the problems of being in a wheelchair, this second part of her autobiography is as touching and memorable as 'Blue Above the Chimneys'About the Author:
Christine Marion Fraser was born in the Gowan district of post-war Glasgow. She now lives with her husband in Argyllshire. She is the author of three series: the bestselling ‘Rhanna’ novels, set on the tiny Hebridean island of the same name; the successful ‘King’s’ series, set in rural Argyllshire and in Glasgow; and her new ‘Noble’ novels, set in a small Argyllshire powdermill town.
