For the Love of Willie
Agnes Owens
ISBN 0 –7475-4011-X

This is a touching story with an inspired mix of tragedy, comedy and compassion.
It starts in wartime Glasgow when sixteen year old Peggy falls in love with her employer. Through realistic dialogue and carefully drawn characters it follows Peggy from girlhood to old age.
It is a relatively short book, only 122 pages, but it is an excellent read with some unexpected twists.
