Family prejudice forces a young couple to flee to Glasgow in World War One, where tragedy and deceit shapes their future.
They called her Auld Nally -- the local moneylender in one of Glasgow's roughest areas, Inchcraig. But once she'd been Alice McInally, beautiful and beloved by her childhood sweetheart. She hadn't anticipated the outcry when they announced their betrothal -- as he was Catholic and she was Protestant.
Cast out by their well-to-do families, the couple's hope of a bright future founders in the realities of war-torn Glasgow, and Alice ends up struggling to make ends meet in the only way she can. Somehow she will win respectability for the children in her care -- even if that means telling a lie with the best of intentions!
