John Douglas ends the year 1872 as a melancholic shadow of a man, left with nine young children following the death of his beloved wife.

Once married, John and Isabella embark on a life together that takes them and their family from the peace of lowland Scotland, to the newly-industrialised towns of northern England. As the years roll toward the twentieth century, the children of the clan mature and leave to make their own ways in the world, each of them experiencing their own personal triumphs and woes.

Peter Ross was born and educated in Carlisle. He is married to Helen and has three children and five grandchildren.
