This is the continuation of the spellbinding 'Hamilton' saga. For Sam Hamilton and Robert Scott, the world has changed greatly since the days when they played outside the Salter's Grange forge where their fathers worked together. Now in their fifties, with families of their own, they are grateful to have work at a time when nearly three million people in the country are unemployed. But they have little joy in their wives, Martha and Ellen, and even less support when they are faced with the unhappiness of a son or daughter. Set in the Ulster of the 1930s, "For Many A Long Day" continues the story of the Hamiltons and their friends and neighbours through that troubled decade. It focuses on the heartache of Sam's younger son and namesake, and the loneliness and anxiety of Robert's beloved youngest daughter, Ellie. This is a tale of courage and friendship, of disappointment and achievement, and ultimately of the triumph of love.
