The Laws of Gartsherrie

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


About the Book

Set in the first quarter of the twentieth century THE LAWS of GARTSHERRIE follows the lives of two families, living and working in the Iron and Steel community of Gartsherrie, Coatbridge.

The characters are strong and believable and the plot is set against the background of the Suffragette movement and the World War.

This book will make you appreciate how fortunate you are to be living in the twenty first century. You will laugh out loud but it will also make you cry. Gartsherrie, and its people, were a rich and vibrant community who, with the closure of Baird's Iron and Steel Works, have slipped into obscurity. THE LAWS OF GARTSHERRIE gives these men, women and children a voice.

About the Author

Retired and looking for a new interest, like many of my generation, I started to research my family tree. I was saddened to find that Gartsherrie, a place that my mother had greatly loved, appeared to have been almost wiped from the pages of history.

With the demolition of Wm. Baird Iron & Steel Works and the flattening of the Rows to make way for new council housing the history of Gartsherrie and its people, during the years when it was so closely affiliated to Wm. Baird & Sons, appears to have simply vanished.

My best efforts on the internet turned up very little information. Even Gartsherrie Primary School and the Carnegie Library have now fallen into neglect and are up for sale.

The Laws of Gartsherrie is my attempt to re-awaken memories of Gartsherrie and the hard working, decent people who lived out their lives within the Rows.

I’m currently working on a sequel to The Laws of Gartsherrie as well as a companion novel, Escape from Gartsherrie.

The Laws of Gartsherrie

From the first chapter I was truly engrossed. AJ Morris certainly must have carried out intensive research. Every character was convincing. A truly enjoyable read. Looking forward to more from this author.
