A compelling, beautifully-observed story of growing up, of anguish and
friendship, true and false, set in London, Scotland and the Peak
District. The Haldanes were her mother’s family. Not that Pauline had much to do
with them after her mother Barbara deserted her husband and child. But
the Haldanes had money, and money is power. So when, soon after the end
of the First World War, her father goes broke, they are prepared to help
– but at a price. Set in London, Scotland and the Peak District, The
Haldanes is a compelling, beautifully-observed story of growing up, of
anguish and friendship, true and false, during the Twenties when all the
old values and rules are under attack. ‘She writes in bright colours
with bold, confident strokes’ Glasgow Herald
