Much of the bomb damage had been cleared from the streets, riverside fires extinguished, bridges reopened and trams and buses were running almost normally. Two nights of heavy bombing had dented the ...Clydeside’s defences but not the pride of its people. What had been strengthened by the severity of the mid-March raids was communal unity; what had been lost was the illusion of invulnerability, the vague, swaggering Glaswegian belief that pugnaciousness and hard-nosed stoicism would keep old Adolf at bay.
Polly and Christy travelled into town by tram.
Polly was down to her last four gallons of black market petrol and couldn’t count on Fin to supply more now that she had given him the heave-ho. Kenny’s warning had come in the nick of time; not only had she allowed herself to become dependent on Fin Hughes she had also become complaisant. She had always known that the relationship had been skewed, a cold-hearted affair entered into without love, and that she had betrayed not only her husband but her own vestigial integrity by sleeping with a man who was even more self-centred than she was.
