Growing up in the suburbs of 1930s Glasgow, Elizabeth Monkton's comfortable world is one day shattered by a chance, but malicious remark. She discovers that her origins are not as she had always assumed - that Christina Monkton, is not in fact her real mother. Elizabeth throws herself into a teaching career, anxious for a distraction from the turbulent emotions which rage inside her. Even the men she meets and thinks she can love, seem to betray her, just as she feels her father did. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Elizabeth's only joy from the oppression of day-to-day life is her ultimate quest to find her natural mother. A Sense of Belonging, Margaret Thomson Davis's powerful sequel to the bestselling A Woman of Property, is a heartrending story of a battle for independence and fulfilment by two very different women, and the redeeming power of family ties.
