EBook Description

This really well written book is set in Glasgow when oysters were a pauper's food and people were scorned as they scrabbled in contaminated estuary mud to get a free mouthful. My Little Oyster Girl PDF EBook

A girl growing up at this time starts selling meat pies hot from the oven to men in the Clyde shipyards at lunchtime and does well. She gets an office job but when she asks about promotion the employer, rubbing his ring with freemasonry symbols, says that won't be likely. So she heads back to food serving and manages to start a tea rooms. Independent women were a rarity.

Glasgow and the coastal town of Largs are well drawn and the feeling of the times comes across well. I enjoyed the characters and lively story. Like this book? Read online this: Growing Up With Good Food, The Oyster Heart.
