9781846670138: What's for Ye, Won't Go by Ye

The story follows the life of two generations of the MacGregor family through the eyes of Linda, Douglas MacGregor's daughter. Beginning in the Possilpark area of Glasgow in 1950 when Linda is two years old, the novel traces the family's struggles though the first part of the twentieth century. From the hardships of the 1930's and the romantic love story and marriage of her parents, Douglas and Margie, through the terrifying war years of the 1940's. World War II seriously affected many soldiers and their families. Men sometimes sacrificed up to six years of their lives defending the UK from Nazi oppression. Others were so badly wounded that they spent the rest of their lives in hospitals. Some were killed in action and never returned home. Of the ones deemed "lucky enough to survive," many suffered lasting emotional and mental anguish. Douglas MacGregor was one of these men. They all had their own ways of dealing with their horrifying memories. Some became very angry - while Douglas, like many others, never spoke about it. Instead he turned to having the odd drink to erase the pain then took his torment out on the ones he loved most - his family. "What's For Ye, Won't Go By Ye" tells how families at home survived in spite of the constant fear of German air bombing raids It covers the peaceful post-war 1950's. It reflects on the on-going Glasgow issues concerning Protestant/Catholic and Rangers/Celtic. It ventures into the magical 1960's: The Glasgow sense of humour shines through in this story, along with the emotion of the times. "What's For Ye, Won't Go By Ye" is not just a novel, but a trip into the hearts and minds of our parents and grandparents - into their personal demons, courage, and triumphs.
