Green Among the Clovers.....

is a novel of historical fiction based on the life of my great-great-grandmother, Caroline Rae, and her two boys. It takes place in Victorian era Scotland between 1860 and 1887.

After bearing a child, the product of an assault by the mill's foreman, she finds herself destitute and without any means of support for herself and her son. Will she end up in the county poorhouse? Will she and the young man she meets escape a life of poverty and destitution? Check out a sample chapter here!
