Period drama series set in Victorian Glasgow, based on the acclaimed novel by Guy McCrone
A Headline Pictures and Little White Rose Films production
In development

Based on Guy McCrone’s classic novel, which was an international best seller and acclaimed New York Times ‘Book of The Month’, this is a story about the life and times of a family with two wildly different heroines who rise from the obscurity of an Ayrshire farm to a position of great prosperity in Victorian Glasgow, before success and family rivalries threaten ruin and the loss of everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve.

At the height of its power Glasgow was a vast industrial complex, whose economy was built on slavery and whose ships and trains serviced the British Empire.

The city would go on to suffer many reversals of fortune, but today there is a new sense of purpose and growing confidence in the future. Set in the 1880s this is a story about the rise and fall of an extraordinary family but it is also about the building of a nation.
