    Edinburgh, 1953. The war is over, a young queen has been crowned and it's a time of great joy and unrest both in Scotland and beyond.



    Kirsten Mowat, eighteen-years-old and with a spring in her step, is glad to be out and about with her handsome, dark-haired sweetheart Duncan Armstrong.


    But there's a secret in her heart that needs to be told - and when Duncan insists on a shotgun wedding, in the Leith register office of all places, it sets Kirsten's life along a downward path no one could have predicted. Married life brings tragedy - the wrenching loss of two newborn triplets - which leads Kirsten's husband and grudging mother-in-law to harden their hearts against the young bride.


    Soon, beset by grief, Kirsten finds herself alone with her two daughters and vulnerable baby Dixie to care for. She must seek out a haven for her precious children among the most unlikely of people, until the kindness of strangers and her own strength of will, create bonds that will draw this family together in new and unexpected ways.


    From much-loved Millie Gray, A Mother's Gift, is an Edinburgh-based story of families entwined, of sorrow and hopefulness...and of a young woman's love for her children and transforming quest for happiness.


    `A compelling read and a very satisfying one, leaving the reader with a sense of hope for the future' - Undiscovered Scotland



    `An emotional story that both made me smile and moved me to tears...I didn't want Millie Gray's charming story to end and definitely loved this amazing book' - With Love For Books
