AN APPLE FROM EDEN - The Seatons, affluent members of the Protestant gentry, own The Haven, a lush opulent estate in the Scottish countryside. The Flynns, proud Catholics to the core, spend their working days in the factories and laundry houses of industrial Glasgow. Divided by class, wealth and religion, the two families could not live more different lives. However, as the Great War fades from memory the Seatons and The Flynns' lives are about to become tragically entangled. THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN - When she was sixteen, Shelia Beattie knew exactly what her future would be. She would marry her sweetheart Eric, a fisherman like her father, and they would raise their family and dream their simple dreams in the village in which they'd been born. But she was sixteen - and about to discover that in this world there is northing certain but change..no-one and nothing to be trusted but the voice of your own heart...
