Description

With a handsome police officer for a husband and a brand new house in a quiet, secluded street bordering Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Mae Kelly appears to have it all. But appearances can be deceptive, and Mae soon finds the demands of living at 1 Waterside Way are more than she bargained for. Glasgow in the 1970s is also proving to be a challenging place to live for some of her neighbours. All Paul Brownlee and Clive Westley want to do is live together in peace but the spiteful Reverend Denby is determined to make sure that won't happen in Waterside Way. Meantime, Charlotte Arlington-Jones and her friend Gemma Ford are bitterly opposed to having an Asian family on the street but when her own daughter falls in love with an Asian boy, prejudices on both sides will test everyone to the limit as families are torn apart. And down the road, Doris Mclvor is struggling to care for her ailing mother and fears she may end up losing her own mind. As secrets are exposed and beliefs are challenged, each household on Waterside Way must face up to its problems and find new ways to survive.
