Marianne Bullock

Marianne came to Scotland from Jamaica, a young bride. Although her life in Edinburgh looks good on paper -- one of the finest new houses in the city, her sister just along the street, a growing family of healthy children -- I suspect she found it a bleak place to live. When her husband retired from military service, the couple spent the last twenty years of their life in the milder climate of Bristol.
