The Road to Nowhere
Third Novel in the Raumsey series
by Catherine Byrne

For Isa and Davie Reid, life as immigrants is full of loneliness and despair. On the long journey from her home in the northern isles of Scotland, Isa meets up with Sarah, a young girl from the Irish community in Liverpool, who has been sent to Canada to marry a friend of her father, a man twice her age whom she has never met. Through the years, both Sarah and Isa grow into strong independent women. The struggle to build a better life in this new, often harsh land is intercepted and exacerbated by the great war, which brings tragedy to some, yet gives Sarah the means of escape from what she sees as the nothingness of her existence.

Left alone during the war years, Isa is faced with extra trials that she could have never foreseen. Tragedy of the past and challenges of the present threaten to overwhelm her, yet she confronts every setback with her normal strength of spirit and unending optimism.
