The late1950s

The late 1950s. When time took a deep breath in preparation for the next decade to sweep away the old and change everything for ever.

This is a love story of two people who are at the opposite sides of the old life and ready to come together and play a part in the new.

John Mason, a man determined to step up and away from his one man business and Flora Ballardine, the fiery laird's daughter.

They meet in London. John to sell a car to the wealthy Freddie Thompson-Smythe.

Flora to spend her 21st birthday with her aunt and to find a surprise birthday present waiting for her. An evening out with an escort, the very unpleasant Freddie.

The evening ends with John being the butt of Flora's temper because of her disastrous time with Freddie.

Though drawn to each other they separate not expecting to meet again, and so commences a love story that weaves its way in and out of the beautiful wilds of Scotland and the multicultural industry of Birmingham.

Others who play a part in John and Flora's story are-

Mungo Ballardine, the laird of Clairgowan, Flora's father. He inherited a vast estate and lost it all apart from Clairgowan House.

Elizabeth Montgomery, who left Scotland because of her infatuation with Mungo, her sister's husband.

Reg Purvis, who met John during their National Service.

Freddie Thompson-Smythe, who became involved in the drug scene of the times and lost everything because of it.

Robert Brown, who Mungo intended Flora would marry to save Clairgowan House.

And 'Simple' Jeannie...

Cars play an important part in John and Flora's story and some of them are-a Javelin-Jupiter, SS-Jaguar SS100, Minx the Magnificent, Alvis Speed Twenty, and a few more...
