Born in the autumn years of Queen Victoria's reign, two brothers have to face the frustrations of saving a failing family business, or else plough their own furrows. David is an apprentice joiner at a local undertaker's and ends up teaching at a boy's penitentiary, but Isaac's decision is made for him when their mother disinherits him for marrying outside of his class.

Neither will go home with his tail between his legs or cap in hand; both will however make good.
Good enough for David to become the grandfather of Margaret Martin. She has turned his story into a novel that follows his hopes and heartbreaks, his hardships and heydeys on a switchback of eye-openers and experiences through two world wars and three generations.

Showing us sides of life, few have lived and fewer still remember, Family Matters is a treat for lovers of bygones and biographies all roller-coastered into one life story.

I am an eighty-six-year-old widow, who decided to write the personal story of my paternal grandfather during the Covid 19 lockdown. I live in the Scottish Highlands, and enjoy regular visits from, and to, my large family, and also the occasional afternoon tea and glass of sherry!
