Seven-year-old Ailsa Dunn's Ma is prettier than all the other mothers her Da is the most handsome man in the world. They're made for each other...But the grown-up world is more complicated than that and when alcohol intrudes violence becomes the norm and unpredictability reigns - and the ground shifts beneath Ailsa's small feet. Ailsa and her big sister Morag - both Ailsa's cruellest tormentor and her staunchest defender - are removed from the care of their adored parents and enrolled at McGregor's Orphan Homes a world away from their Wallace Street tenement. Here the rules are strict: there are chores there are curfews the ever-present threat of Auntie Vera and bitter resignation as visits from Ma and Da become fewer and further between. But there's also fish and chips a holiday by the sea a pillowcase full of toys at Christmas and life-changing for Ailsa an inspirational teacher and the chance discovery of a rare musical talent that will give her the opportunity to take her future into own hands. The Sun Hasn't Fallen From the Sky is a vibrant portrait of two sisters growing up together in 1970s Glasgow as their family falls apart; a tender childhood memoir both heartbreaking and uplifting.
