Edinburgh, 1822: In the glittering New Town, the Scottish capital is fast transforming itself into the Athens of the North. Catriona Dunbar lives in the dank underground vaults of the Old Town, where she and her young brother Andrew are slaves in all but name to their grasping aunt and lecherous uncle. Proud and determined, Kate dreams of escape for Andrew and herself, a dream that may come true when she meets handsome and wealthy medical student Richard Hope. A vibrant love letter to old Edinburgh, One Sweet Moment brings to life another time while skilfully weaving a tale of love and loss.
