MAY 1945 In post-war Leith, the church bells have barely stopped ringing but the Anderson family must quickly come to terms with the harsh realities of peacetime Britain. As Johnny's hopes of a life in politics finally come true, his vows to remain a dutiful husband and father and to keep himself aloof from the murkiness of the Westminster establishment are proving problematic. Peacetime is not easy for Johnny's Polish brother-in-law Hans, either. Meanwhile, probationer nurse Kitty -- Johnny's daughter from his first marriage -- gets caught up in a sensational trial when her friend Laura's brother is accused of murder. Supporting Laura and her mother throughout the trial, Kitty becomes fascinated by the seemingly cold, eloquent and masterly prosecuting counsel -- and he is equally bewitched by her. When they meet again four years later, will the memory of how he ruthlessly pursued Laura's brother prove to be a barrier to a future relationship? Moving On is a saga of love, family and friendship in hard times, with the Anderson family finding that, even after the war is over, they still have their problems of their own to resolve.

The future looks rosy, until Freda's life is turned upside down by a brutal attack. As Freda struggles to come to terms with what has happened to her, she relies on her old friends more than ever. Dear Robin and Freda's ever-faithful friend Hannah come to her rescue, and Freda accepts the new path her life has taken. However, a chance meeting with her old love Ewan brings a potentially life-changing dilemma. Does Freda dare to finally put herself and her own desires first? Or should she simply accept her lot in life? The consequences of her decision could change all of their lives forever. Millie Gray once again brilliantly recreates the atmosphere of the era with all the hardships and struggles as well as the fun, warmth and humour of everyday life.

The condemned tenement is the home to many families in dire poverty and Anna, known as a 'wise-woman', hatches and dispatches and treats all minor ailments for her friends. She dedicates her life to raising six children, four boys and two girls who are not her own. The girls, Rachel and Bella, remain with her into adulthood and despite her care she is horrified when fifteen-year-old Bella becomes pregnant by Gus, someone she had given shelter to in his hour of need. Gus skips the country and is hotly pursued across the world and made to return to marry Bella. The bane of Anna's life is the ne'er-do-weel Gabby, Rachel's father. Little does she realise that her continuing desire for revenge against him will have such a devastating effect on Rachel and also the rest of the family. The story covers an eighteen-year period from 1908. The families struggle to cope with daily life but there are bigger tragedies in store. The sinking of the Titanic, the First World War, the Gretna Rail Disaster, the Spanish flu - all have serious repercussions on the lives of the families involved, and Anna, as ever, is there to help them come to terms with them.

This brilliant sequel to Millie Gray's first novel, "In a Class of Their Own", continues the story of Rachel Campbell and her family. It's October 1954 and Sam is home from his eventful National Service experiences in the Korean War. Meanwhile, Rachel's eldest daughter Hannah is due to have her second child on a remote Hebridean island and the birth is far from straightforward. Sam joins the police and he finds it particularly challenging to be competing with his more academic brother Paul. Then, just as life seems to be settling down for the Campbells, Rachel gets news that her estranged husband Johnny has died - some fifteen years after he'd deserted his family. And, typically, Johnny has left a mess behind him which Rachel has to clean up. Millie Gray once again brilliantly recreates the atmosphere of the postwar era with all the hardships and struggles as well as the fun, warmth and humour of everyday life.
