Roses Round the Door

(1986)
A novel by

 
 
'Christine Marion Fraser overcame the vicissitudes of extreme poverty and illness in her early years to write stories which enthralled readers throughout the world and made her one of the most-borrowed Scottish authors in Britain's libraries.' - The Scotsman

Roses Round the Door is the touching sequel to Christine Marion Fraser's autobiography, Blue Above the Chimneys. Following the death of her parents, Christine goes to live on a housing scheme with her sister Kirsty, her brother-in-law and niece. But while existence on the housing scheme leaves much to be desired, Christine is as determined as ever to live a full and happy life.

With much humour, warmth and charm, Fraser explores the realities of growing up in a wheelchair, as well as her experiences of working in a factory, of finding love, and of beginning what would become a successful writing career.

Set against the evocative backdrop of the Scottish Highlands, Roses Round the Door is a heart-warming tale that is every bit as delightful and moving as Blue Above the Chimneys.
