Description

The Breadmaker's Saga follows the story of a Glasgow working class community living through the dark days of the Depression and the Second World War. Clydend, McNair's Bakery and the surrounding tenements, are all vividly and absorbingly depicted, as are the lives and loves of people like Catriona, a young woman trying to cope with an overbearing husband; the foreman baker Baldy Fowler and his tragic wife, Sarah; Alec Jackson, the philandering insurance salesman; and a host of other colourful characters, who face up to the ordinary challenges of life and the extraordinary challenges of war with honesty, optimism and hope. 'All human life is there, laughter and tears together.' The Scotsman 'Mrs Davis catches the time with honest-to-goodness certainty.' The Guardian 'Simply written with an exceptional quality of understatement, it wins instant sympathy.' Glasgow Evening Citizen 'A Glaswegian equivalent of Coronation Street.' Daily Express
