Sarah Broadhurst's view...

At sixteen our heroine is forced to move from her sheltered upbringing g in the glorious highlands of Scotland to life in the raw in the tenements of Glasgow. Quite a culture shock. She is a truly lovely author, real curl-up and sink-into stuff.

Comparison: Ruth Hamilton, Susan Sallis, Charlotte Bingham.
Similar this month: Josephine Cox, Santa Montefiore.

If you like Emma Blair you might also like to read books by Eileen Ramsay, Marcia Willett and Ruth Hamilton.

Synopsis

Little White Lies by Emma Blair

For sixteen-year-old Lizzie McDougall, life in the Glasgow tenements comes as a culture shock after her sheltered upbringing in the Highlands. But for her father, who has just lost his job in the tiny town of Tomintoul, Glasgow offers employment. It also enables Lizzie to work in a factory as a seamstress - and it opens her horizons to new friends as well. Especially the spirited Pearl, who introduces Lizzie to her boyfriend Willie, and her cousin, the handsome, happy-go-lucky Jack. Jack is a real bobby-dazzler ...

It's not just Lizzie who faces temptation in the big city. Her father Doogie, also working in a factory, is exposed to it in the shape of the buxom Daisy. He moved here for the sake of his family's future, but now he's in danger of throwing that future away...

It falls to Lizzie's mother, Ethne, to hold the family together. And soon she's doing so in a way that none of them could have envisaged when Lizzie, on one fateful night with Jack, does the wrong thing with the worst possible results...
