Coming of age story of young girl in Glasgow...

They called it Black Friday in Parr Street when the factory closed, and whole families in the slums of Glasgow during the Depression felt the cruel sting of despair. Vicky Devine's father was devastated. But young Ken Blacklaws had steel in his veins: "I'm going to make something of my life" he would tell her with passion and a dangerous fire in his eyes. Maybe that's why Vicky loved him so much.
Beautiful Vicky, her loved gained strength and defiance in the midst of bleakness and hardship. As Ken ruthlessly fought his way out of poverty, his ambition knew no bounds. For in his life time he would break the law and Vicky's heart, but never could he break her spirit.
