Overview

A moving, tender and darkly romantic tale from the pen of a talented Scottish writer and historian.

Edinburgh, 1822. Kate Dunbar dreams of a better life for herself and her young brother Andrew, far away from their cruel aunt and uncle and the gloomy vaults where she is worked hard by day and tormented by night.

When wealthy young medical student Richard Hope walks into her life, Kate knows his interest in her won't help her situation. Yet it's not long before the two of them have fallen head-over-heels in love.

Others are watching the young couple. Radical booksellers Peggy and Nathaniel Henderson have Kate's best interests at heart. Her grasping and venal uncle doesn't, and he soon begans to lay his own evil plans.

Kate and Richard's passionate and poignant romance plays out against the colour and pageantry of King George IV's visit to Edinburgh in 1822, and culminates in the drama of the Great Fire of Edinburgh of 1824. Can their love story have a happy ending, or will fate and the rigid rules of society allow them only one sweet moment of happiness?

'A big, huge, romantic story with a totally heart-melting ending.' Clare English, BBC Radio Scotland.

South Bridge was first published in print under the title of One Sweet Moment.
