An exclusive ebook short story about one woman's quest to find something good when life turns horribly bad. Contains an exclusive extract from the WWI-set novel, When the Dawn Breaks.

Skye, 1881. Catriona knew that Calum was a proud man when she married him yet she didn't expect those qualities to have such an effect on their life: when the landowners want the crofters arrested for grazing cattle on their land Calum is one of the first men who volunteers to go to prison. Catriona, pregnant with their first child, is unable to change his mind and so she finds herself alone - and it is alone that she must face tragedy, pain and heartache. Convinced that her ignorance is to blame, Catriona makes a promise to herself that no one will suffer as she has and it is a promise that will change everything.

Gripping, authentic and emotional, The Midwife's Promise is a short story about one woman's quest to find something good when life turns horribly bad.

*Contains an exclusive extract from the WWI-set novel, When the Dawn Breaks.*

Emma Fraser

Emma Fraser emigrated to Africa with her Gaelic-speaking parents when she was nine years old and remembers lying in bed and listening to her father playing the bagpipes. She returned to the Western Isles of Scotland years later and went on to qualify as a nurse, working in Edinburgh and Glasgow before leaving to study English Literature at Aberdeen University.

Emma began writing when her daughters started school and she has published three historical novels, two of which were shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award. Her third book, The Shipbuilder's Daughter, was inspired by, as always, true events - this time by the Glasgow shipyards where her grandfather once worked.
