Emmie Kelso is only nine years old when she is rescued from a dingy Gateshead tenement and sent to Crawdene for her health; taken in to the vibrant, loving household of the MacRaes, a radical mining family. Blossoming into a pretty, spirited young woman, Emmie is swept off her feet by handsome miner Tom Curran, but learns too late of his possessive, violent nature. As war engulfs Europe in 1914, Tom enlists but Emmie joins the MacRaes and others in their cries for peace. Working alongside Rab, the MacRaes' eldest son, their childhood devotion to each other sparks into a love too strong to hide. But when Rab is arrested as a conscientious objector and Emmie becomes an outcast in her own home, her ideals and love are put to the ultimate test, in this dramatic and heart-wrenching story.
Set against the fascinating backdrop of the Great War, A Crimson Dawn is one of the gripping and impassioned Tyneside Sagas.
