The Breadmakers Saga

The Breadmakers Saga - by Margaret Thomson Davis

A Glaswegian equivalent of Coronation Street

The Breadmakers Saga follows the story of a Glasgow working class community living through the dark days of the Depression and the Second World War. Clydend, McNair's Bakery and the surrounding tenements, are all vividly and absorbingly depicted, as are the lives and loves of people like Catriona, a young woman trying to cope with an overbearing husband; the forman baker Baldy Fowler and his tragic wife, Sarah; Alec Jackson, philandering insurance salesman; and a host of other colourful characters, who face up to the ordinary challenges of life and the extraordinary challenges of war with honesty, optimism and hope.
