Canny and self-assured, Edie stands out in a family of men, whose authority she is only too happy to question. Brother Fraser is especially vexed both by empowered Edie’s new job at Marshalls factory and the male friendships she forms there. As well as developing a strong relationship with reclusive Davy, Edie is particularly drawn to Johnnie’s socialism.
