The Bird Flies High

(2001)
A novel by

 
Glasgow, 1920s: Growing up in a poor but loving family in the packed tenements around Glasgow cathedral, Josephine Shaw dreams of a very different life for herself, her beloved mother, young sister and brother. Taken on as a copygirl at one of Glasgow's newspapers in sophisticated Buchanan Street, she is overjoyed. Fate, however, intervenes, and Josie is left alone and friendless.

Sheer guts and determination allow her to climb back from despair to success, and she becomes a reporter in the bustling and busy offices of the same newspaper. Life is good, even if her relationship with fellow journalist Roddy Cunningham has its complications - and on both sides.

Can he find the courage to trust again and can Josie find the courage to tell him the dark secrets of her past?

A page-turning story of love, family, friendship and forgiveness in the Glasgow of the General Strike, the Hungry 30s & the Second World War.
