Joe Habbershaw, now a prosperous bookie, was good-humored and kind-some might say too kind. With a gleaming Austin Twelve parked outside a desirable Victorian house in the best part of Hull and punters throwing their money about like confetti, generosity seems the order of the day. But when things start to go wrong, a simple act of kindness can have far-reaching and unexpected consequences. Set in England and spanning two world wars, The Glass Rainbow is a gripping and powerful story about two families, and their struggle to make life a success.
