The Millar family live next door to the Riettis on Ginger Street, a row of Victorian tenements on Edinburgh¿s south side, but their circumstances couldn¿t be more different. Ruth Millar would like to stay on at school, but her father¿s salary as a grocer¿s assistant is barely enough to put food on the table, let alone provide for such luxuries as an education. By contrast the Riettis own the local corner shop and a little cafe at the end of Ginger Street. Ruth¿s father dreams of owning his own business one day. Meanwhile Ruth secretly dreams of Nicco Rietti. But he's older, Italian and he's CATHOLIC - three things which make him out of bounds for Ruth, especially with war looming on the horizon...
