The Kinnons of Candleriggs

(2004)
(The first book in the Candleriggs series)
A novel by

 
An uncompromising story of one woman's life in Victorian Glasgow. Kate, a chamber maid, pregnant and unexpectedly married to the son of Irish landed gentry, expects a life fitting her husband's status, but her husband is cut off without a penny by his family. So, instead, as poverty-stricken Irish immigrants considered the lowest of the low by the Glaswegians, she has to battle religious, cultural, and social prejudice. Told with humour, compassion, and a keen insight into the period, this is a first rate read.
