Love & Sorrow

(2015)
A novel by

 
Glasgow, the 1900s.

Nothing was more shaming than to give birth to 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 early twentieth century.

The threat of Bubonic Plague in Glasgow in 1900.

The Ibrox Disaster of 1902, when the newly built West Tribune Stand collapsed due to heavy rainfall the previous night.

The Great War which claimed the lives of the city's young men.

The Great Depression which robbed it of so many jobs.

And the trials and tests of World War Two, the great national struggle in which every person was involved.

Through it all, Meg experiences the extremes of both Love and Sorrow.

'Love & Sorrow' is a moving, epic saga that brilliantly captures the turbulent history of the first half of the twentieth century.

In Meg, Jenny Telfer Chaplin has created a memorable character - a woman whose strength and fortitude in the face of terrible tragedy and loss will both inspire and move readers.

'An enthralling story that kept me hooked from the first page to the last' - Robert Foster, best-selling author of 'The Lunar Code'.

Jenny Chaplin is a well known writer to loyal readers worldwide for her books on Scottish social history and for her articles in the Scots Magazine and the Scottish Banner. Jenny, as a Fellow of the Society of Antiquarians of Scotland, is well qualified to write her historical novels after years of research into and writing about Scottish social history. She now writes her novels in her centuries old cottage on the Island of Bute under the name Jenny Telfer Chaplin to differentiate between her fiction and non-fiction writing.
