The Poppy Field

A novel by

On the cusp of adulthood, Velana Domingo's world is turned upside down when her childhood sweetheart has to leave the small town of Olhao in Southern Portugal to become a priest. Shortly afterwards, the sudden death of her father results in her mother revealing a dark truth from the past, announcing that her real father is instead a charismatic Scotsman named Ian McKinnon.

As Velana's life is no longer what it used to be, she embarks on a hugely successful music career where she soon tours Europe for months on end. As she finds love with promoter Hamish McQueen, Velana is drawn to the remote islands of Scotland and is determined to meet her real father.

The Poppy Field is a romance-filled novel where fate plays a heavy role. As Velana travels through life back to her home in Portugal, characters interweave, revealing the importance in family, friendship and forgiveness. Christine Marion Fraser and Frank Ian Galloway produce this heart-warming novel full of surprise and suspense; perfect for fans of romantic drama.

Christine Marion Fraser was one of Scotland's best-selling authors. She was the author of the much-loved Rhanna series, a Scottish saga set on the Hebridean island of Rhanna. She also wrote the acclaimed King's Croft series as well as the Noble series. Christine's formative years were spent in the post-war Govan district of Glasgow and she spent her later life in Argyll with her husband.

Frank Ian Galloway was born in Glasgow but at an early age moved to Argyll with his family. There he grew up amidst the splendour of the beautiful Cowal Peninsula. As a young boy he went to sea with the War Dept and worked with bomb disposal. Later he went into the construction trade where he met and worked with many memorable characters. A born storyteller, Frank always kept his family entranced by his tales and took up his pen in a more serious way to write novels.
