Waterstones Says

From the author of former Waterstones Scottish Book of the Year The Fair Botanists comes another evocative historical novel of female empowerment, as two women are drawn together by an inconvenient collection of erotic art.

You wouldn't suspect it, but scandalous secrets are being kept on Blythswood Square...

1846. Glasgow is a city on the cusp of great social change, but behind the curtains, neighbours are watching, and rumours of improper behaviour spread like wildfire on the respectable Blythswood Square.

When Charlotte Nicholl discovers that the fortune she has been bequeathed by her father is tied up in a secret collection of erotic art, she is faced with a terrible dilemma: sell it and risk shaming her family's good name or lose her home.

An encounter with Ellory McHale, a talented working-class photographer newly arrived in Glasgow, leads Charlotte to hope she has found not only someone who might help her, but also an unlikely friend.

Yet Ellory is hiding secrets of her own - secrets that become harder to conceal as she finds herself drawn into Charlotte's world.

As the truth begins to catch up with both women, will it destroy everything they've fought to build - or set them both free?

“A wonderful tale of female friendship, emancipation and independence.”

I loved Sarah Sheridan’s The Secrets of Blythswood Square. If you’re from Glasgow, you’ll know that it used to have a certain connotation to it as a place where one might meet prostitutes. This is not true of Sara... More
